Exotic Birds Added
In addition to some very rare visitors that showed up for the first time, the updates this year include three exotic birds.
Rosy-faced Lovebirds are now established in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Nanday Parakeets are found near St. Petersburg, Florida and in Los Angeles, California. And the Purple Swamphen is established (and becoming a pest) near Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Free Updates for v4 and v5
2013 updates are now available for current versions
Free updates are now available for those of you using version 4.0, 4.5, 5.0 and 5.5. To get the free updates just open your birding program and click "Check for Updates."
This link to our web site shows you exactly what to do: Checking For Updates.


If you still have an obsolete version of our software (such as version 1, 2 or 3) you can get the latest version at a reduced price. This link shows you how: Upgrade to Newest Version.

Changes in version 4.5.2 and 5.5.2
This free update includes taxonomical changes made in the 54th Supplement to the American Ornithologist's Union Checklist (July 2013) including the split of Sage Sparrow into Bell's Sparrow and Sagebrush Sparrow and the addition of Rosy-faced Lovebird, Nanday Parakeet and Purple Swamphen and as well as [in the Gold edition] Double-toothed Kite, Asian Rosy-Finch, Providence Petrel and Rufous-necked Wood Rail.
In addition we have also updated state and province checklists and added over 25 new photos and 10 new songs. Pick One Quizzes no longer display bird's eggs as possible answers (Oops! One of my bigger blunders!) And birds with hyphenated names and birds with three words in the common name are now easier to find. [Mac users - as you type, hold down the fn key in the lower left corner of the keyboard and press F5 at the same time.]
Sneak Preview...
We are very busy working on an exciting new project! In partnership with WildBirds.com, we are creating hundreds of online bird quizzes that will be available to everyone.


You can help. We are looking for very clear photos of birds from North America and around the world. If you would like to be a part of this exciting project, please visit the Wildbird Quiz group at Flickr.com.  

We would love to hear from you. Let us know what you would like to see next. Tell us how you are using your birding program. We may include your comments on our web site!
Good Birding,
