All of Your Lists

At last, all of your birding lists together in one place.

Tired of having the lists of your birding trips and sightings scattered here and there?
SWIFT keeps all of your sighting information together, letting you compare
your lists year-to-year and season-to-season.

The SWIFT main screen displays all of your key birding information for your lists in 'panels'. This information includes:

Species most and least frequently recorded
All species in your most recently recorded sighting
Counts for your highest year, month as well as the last life bird recorded to each list
Counts for all-time, current year and month with the list of species in each available at the click of your mouse
and more ...

(Note: Premium Edition screen shown below; Life List Edition of SWIFT is limited to a single 'Life' list.)

Main Screen
Fastest Entry of Any Listing Software

One of the most important features in any birder listing software is how quickly you can enter your sightings. SWIFT has multiple methods for entering your sightings more quickly than you ever could before.

Every other listing software on the market requires you to type in part or all of a species name, very tedious and time consuming. With SWIFT, you can choose from checking birds off in the checklist, copying existing (similar) sightings as a starting point and then modifying them slightly or using some or all of the more common species SWIFT has kept track of as your 'regulars' for a given list.

Your Photos

If you are one of the growing number of birders who take their digital camera into the field with them, you likely have hundreds or thousands of pictures of the birds you have seen.

There is no better way to organize your birding pictures right along your sightings than in SWIFT.

All photos

Unlike every other birding software that only allows an exact duplicate of your original photo, with SWIFT you can resize, crop and pan your photos right in the software. As you can see in the screenshot below, you can position the bird anywhere inside the frame, so it will appear just the way you want in SWIFT. Don't worry about affecting the original you have on file, SWIFT takes its own copy so your original remains unchanged.

Adding a photo in SWIFT

Your photos are displayed throughout SWIFT. When entering new sightings, if you hover over a species name, a saved photo will appear alongside.

Photos appear in your checklist

Looking back through your recorded sightings from the past months or years? Your photos will appear there as well, a great memory of your birding trips.

Favorite photos

Photos also show up in species-specific reports.
