Hi Shane just a suggestion for you to consider.
I have been doing some more testing /entering data as I get time.
Not sure how people collect / record data but I get a feel that there is a need ( or it would be nice) for an event option which would be bird based but be stored and then displayed when a bird is selected.
This is similar to history to record perhaps the changes in cages, the date a pair is formed or a clutch is hatch / emerged from nest etc.
This data could be keyed with the bird ID number and then have a screen to record. After a bird is selected then an event could be defined such as species etc is now and then a date and a note field. With breeding etc a second bird could be selected but be left blank if it is a single bird event.
If the second bird is selected then the info would be saved for both birds.
I am sure it would be beneficial to be able to display history for separate birds as well as to be able to trace trends such as dates of breeding / entering nests / fledging etc.
Regards
Brian

I tried Avi-manage, the problem I have with all software I've tried is their is only one column for leg rings.
On the excell sheet i've been using for 20+ years I have one column called "Rings left" and another "Rings right". So you just add the ring color/number to the appropriate column. Makes it instantly recognisable.

Maybe a tool like "http://www.finchbreederdatabase.com/phpBB3" will more effective to help on breeding records tracking.
