When you are ready, our BirdSyncho program easily downloads your sightings and locations to a file on your PC computer. Then it takes seconds to simply upload this file to the eBird data import site. All your locations and bird sightings transfer rapidly into the eBird system. Then you can have your sightings emailed back to you.

Even better - If you run Pocket Bird Recorder on a Mobile 6.1 phone w/ built-in GPS, such as the Palm® Treo™ 800w, or any Pocket PC with an inexpensive GPS card, your birding locations will automatically be plotted on the eBird map.
