An easy way to record your bird observations

The main objective of the majority of bird watchers is to record sightings of birds. This is the primary interest of amateur birdwatchers. However, many of us are reluctant to write down notes in the field. One of the major reasons is the time taken to write down notes reduce the time for watching birds. Here is a solution for recording. Standardized abbreviations (Alpha codes) allow you to record your observations on note book within seconds without compromising time for birding. It is not necessary to keep all the codes in mind. Anybody can create the code for any bird, once the principles are understood.
