1. Open Birda and press the large + button at the bottom of the screen.

  2. Select ‘Log a bird’ if you’re only logging a single sighting. View our ‘Logging a Birding Session’ article if you’re out birding and plan to log more than one bird sighting.

  3. Add a photo of the bird if you have one.

  4. Select the location of the sighting. This will automatically be pulled from your photo if your photo is geotagged.

  5. Choose the bird species name (use the search bar) or select “I don’t know” if you are unsure (make sure you add a photo later on if this is the case!)

  6. Check that the time is correct, and if necessary, adjust this to the time of your sighting. The time will automatically populate from the photo date and time if you added a photo.

  7. From the summary screen, you can now add/remove a photo, add additional photos, edit the location, edit the species or edit the date and time of your sighting.

  8. Select ‘save sighing’ to post your sighting!

  9. Well done! You’ve logged a bird.
