Scythebill is a desktop application for birders to keep track of their life lists and birding records. There's plenty of great birdlist software and birding software available today, but:
- Scythebill is free (and will remain so).
- Scythebill is easy-to-use. It takes a few minutes to get started.
- Scythebill is powerful - loads of features, like flipping between the Clements and IOC checklists
- Scythebill is cross-platform - you don't need to lose your list just because you switch from Mac to Windows to Linux.
- Scythebill is open-source, so anyone can contribute to its development.
