Birds of North America Online also offers audio recordings of bird songs and calls, such as the yodel of the Pacific Loon or the familiar song of the American Robin. You can also watch videos that highlight bird behaviors: watch an American Goldfinch eat a sunflower seed close-up, a Red-shouldered Hawk in flight or feeding time for a flock of American White Pelicans.
You can search Birds of North America Online by a bird's common name or scientific name, as well as by keywords. Maintained and updated by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the content is updated frequently with contributions from researchers, citizen scientists and designated reviewers and editors.
