Containing a wealth of information on 706 species, this interactive software is an excellent birder's reference in a convenient DVD format. It includes high-resolution photos of each species (including the male, female, young, nest and egg), audio files of their songs recorded by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, range and abundance maps, and complete text descriptions from the classic reference book, The Birder's Handbook
An additional 275 video files show a wide range of bird behavior filmed in natural habitats. Easy-to-use identification tools help quickly narrow the search when trying to identify unknown birds, and you can display two listings at once for side-by-side comparison. Supplementary reference materials include quizzes, hundreds of articles on bird biology, and internet links for technical support and additional birding resources. You can even create your own log to keep track of your bird-watching experiences.
Useful for more than home reference, all photos and audio files can be downloaded to an MP3 player or other portable device for use in the field.
PC and Mac compatible (see “Tech” link below for system requirements).
