Personal Lists

The Personal List module is designed for you to create your own personal Life List and lists for each locality that you have been birding in the world. The lists are created by first selecting a bird in the list on the left and then clicking [Add Selected]. The bird is now "live" for editing and you can enter all the details for this record. This is repeated until you have complete the list, at which stage you can either create a new list or print out the current list. This module also allows you to create lists for multiple users which are written to individual databases.

This page includes:

  • 'dual-picture' interface
  • list hierarchy of countries and provinces
  • details of currently selected bird or birds (date, place, view, class, notes and breeding)
  • "clear details" option for automatically adding repetitive details
  • an editing lock to protect existing records
  • display panel showing entered records
  • diary function for a notes on the list
  • sort by field options
