Birds of the World is a powerful new research database that contains comprehensive life histories of more than 10,700 bird species and a deep overview of all 249 bird families. With scholarly content amassed from four celebrated works of ornithology and ongoing updates by leading ornithologists, these species accounts are integrated with millions of bird records from eBird and rich media resources from the Macaulay Library. Birds of the World provides scientists, students, conservationists, and birders with the sharpest picture yet of the biology of the world’s birdlife.
Birds of the World is available in public and academic libraries as well as in government agencies, consulting firms, nature centers, and nonprofits in more than a forty countries.
The Cornell Lab offers flexible pricing and access arrangements that allow all or designated members of an institution complete access to Birds of the World species accounts. Pricing depends upon the type and size of the institution/organization, the nature of use, and the number of potential users. Access is typically granted by IP address ranges and remote, off-site access can be arranged.
