Bird Brain 7.4 is the last version of Bird Brain.

We are sorry to say that Bird Brain 7.4 is the last version of Bird Brain. Filemaker, the database that Bird Brain is created in, has said it will no longer support the Runtime version that is needed for Bird Brain's distribution.   

We will still support upgrading from previous versions of Bird Brain to version 7.4. So you can bring forward your older data into the Bird Brain's newer taxonomy.

We will also provide counseling and custom help units.

But going forward, there is a solution. You can export your Bird Brain 7.4 data and import it into Scythebill.

Scythebill can easily import data from Bird Brain 7.4.

Scythebill is free, and it supports the latest taxonomy.

It also allows you to move your data into eBird.

How to get Scythebill

Here's the link to download it. There is a Mac version, and it's free.
