“My wife and I have birded together in 42 countries since the early 1960s and I could never have kept in touch with the current worldwide taxonomic onslaught without the help of Birders Diary! It does exactly the job that I need it to do!”

The Birder’s Diary web site states that: “You will receive prompt, professional and courteous support from Birder’s Diary staff!” YAWN.. I’ve heard that line before. BUT IT IS TRUE!!!!!! I was frankly surprised and delighted also with the way you solved my problems installing Version 3.7 on my computers this morning. You clearly understand and practice what professional “Customer Service” can be. Today you made a friend for “lifer”. Thanks much for the great service!!
