The latest featured resource at PSU Library is the database Birds of North America. Birds of North America has information about over 760 bird species that breed in the United States (including Alaska and Hawaii) and Canada. In this database, ornithologists and other bird experts write detailed accounts about different bird species. Accounts include summary information, as well as in-depth, authoritative research. Sounds, images, video, and maps give even more information for researchers’ varied needs.

Birds of North America is for everyone. Users can browse the database easily for a basic overview. On the other hand, researchers who need more in-depth research about specific species information will be able to delve into more details. Information includes a brief introduction about the bird, as well as detailed information including migration, diet, behavior, and conservation.
