Pros
  • Very easy to install and view
Cons
  • Learning curve
I find this perfect for our South African birds as the illustrations are much larger than in most of the books - this will help people who dont have the best eyesight.

Its very easy to find specific birds and very good when trying to identify birds. The program has the normal painted picture plus a host of other pictures including eggs, nest etc and birds as well as bird calls. You can even add your own pictures and there is a map where you can place your sightings.

There is a definite learning curve to get the best out of the program but I think most computer literate people will find this OK. A decent HELP program is part of the package.

As a beginner I find it very helpful but my guess is the advanced birder will get more out of it than the beginner and make use of more features. It has 958 bird pages, habitat details, birding spots etc.

I think its pretty good and the service was exceptional - arrived in a day!
