In 2012, David Bell’s company BirdsInTheHand, LLC, released a mobile app called ‘BirdLog’, on Android and iOS devices. This app revolutionized the way birders recorded information in the field, and was the first and only app to tie directly into your eBird account for data entry. The app became so critical to eBird, that in 2014 the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and David Bell reached an agreement to transfer development and management the app to the eBird team at Cornell.
This new app is now called eBird Mobile. If you have an old version of BirdLog running on your mobile device, please replace it with eBird Mobile. The good news is that eBird Mobile is free, so upgrading is simply a matter of downloading the new app and logging in using your eBird credentials.
