Palm Helds for Birders

Doug and Tweeters,

I use a palm hand held for recording my bird sightings whilst out and about.
I have Bird Recorder 32 by Wildlife Computing on my desktop PC as my main
birding database and use their companion product for handhelds on my Palm.
At the end of any birding trip it is simply a matter of downloading the
information from the Palm straight onto the PC database. These days instead
of noting what I see in the field and then transcribing it into the PC I
simply note it on the Palm in the field and then within a matter of seconds
of getting home it can be recorded in my database. I find it makes life so
much easier!

Hope this helps,
