J-Bird provides a system for recording observations of birds. It is oriented toward recording information made on single-day birding trips. Information recorded includes region, locality, key words, date, notes about the trip, observer, species seen and notes about individual species. From information stored in J-Bird, you can generate trip reports, lists of species observed in your life or in various regions or periods of time, and you can generate tables that display counts of species that have been observed in various regions and periods of time.
J-Bird does not provide access to encyclopedic information, images or sounds.

J-Bird is still alpha software. Expect bugs and limited functionality.
Free software comes without someone at the other end of a phone line, waiting to answer your questions. Developers of free software have lives and real jobs and cannot spend all their free time answering questions. The community of free software users largely supports itself through public forums. Forums e-mail lists are available at J-Bird's SourceForge page. The usenet news group rec.birds may also become a useful forum for support.
