The Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Thayer Birding Software have joined forces to create the Guide to Birds of North America v3.5. The new version features all 926 birds ever seen in the U.S. or Canada (excluding Hawaii).
This Windows-based CD-ROM includes 2,788 color photos and songs for 707 species. There are also 90 video clips.
This CD can help you identify unfamiliar birds. Simply select the color, size, habitat, location or sound of your bird, and the program will show you everything that matches your description!
With version 3.5, you can also share Custom Lists with your friends, download songs to an iPod for your own personal use and add your own comments and photos for each bird. New colorful icons make it very easy to use the CD.
