Hello,

This is a program that shows bird names is various languages. The search language can be changed.
Tested on a HTC Hero and Desire.

All comments are more than welcome.

Hi Merlet,

Thanks for sharing such a large database. :sign0098:

Tip: if you change

lvNames.SingleLineLayout.ItemHeight = 35
to
lvNames.SingleLineLayout.ItemHeight = 35dip

then the ListView will show up fine on all devices.

Also, under Select search language: Deutch = Deutsch

Cheers
Robert

No Problem, Helen,

Glad to assist. Looking forward to a version with bird images.

I tried to take pictures of native birds in Okinawa (most common here is the "Taiwan Shirogashira"), but they are too smart and too fast for me :)

If astronomy interests you as well, please have a look at my prototype site:
Requio Web Design Mobile (mobile and desktop).

So far you can download three APK's.

Hello Robert,

Your program really looks impressive (already downloaded it a few days ago).
I will start using it when the nights are getting warmer here, ha, ha.

I'm working on another program for birding, will take a while before it has all the functionality that I have in mind (with pictures).

This translator only contains birds that are seen in Europe.
You can download the worldlists of birds and other species at: Observado.org -> Overviews -> Downloads
On this site you can enter your sightings as well and you are more than welcome to do so (no sightings from Okinawa yet ;))

Must be a beautiful area for birding where you live and I am looking forward to see your picture of the Chinese bulbul.

Regards,
Helen.

Hello,

The original post contains a new version of the species translator.
Added a wildcard inputfield and a Search button and another ListView with the alphabet.

Hope that the .zip contains all the files needed ..........

Greets,
Helen.
