Birds of North America Online

What is it? The Birds of North America Online provides detailed scientific information for each of the 716 species of birds nesting in the USA and Canada. The print version of BNA was completed in 2002 (18 volumes, 18,000 pages in total), a joint 10 year project of the American Ornithologists' Union, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and the Academy of Natural Sciences. The BNA Online will build image and video galleries showing behaviors, habitat, nests, eggs and nestlings, and more. Each online species account will contain recordings of that bird's songs and calls, selected from the extensive collection in Cornell's Macaulay Library of Natural Sounds.
