The Cornell Lab of Ornithology has packaged together its 2014 revised edition of The Cornell Guide to Bird Sounds: Master Set for North America (the most comprehensive guide available for the sounds of North American birds with nearly 5,000 cuts from over 730 different species) with the Birds of North America (the definitive source of life history information for over 750+ bird species that breed in the United States and Canada). This package provides the instructions and links to download the entire Master Set (2.65GB), and to establish a 1 year subscription to the Birds of North America which will enable complete access to the entire BNA database, including all of its photos, videos and sounds.

The Master Set includes multiple examples of sound (including vocal and mechanical sounds) for each of the over 730 bird species that regularly breed in the United States and Canada as well as diagnostic vocalizations of vagrants. The Master Set is a culmination of nine decades of effort by more than 300 recordists, researchers and archivists. Macaulay Library's latest version of the Master Set of Bird Sounds now requires less storage space than the original enabling a faster download.

The Birds of North America is acknowledged as the preeminent source of life history information for the over 750+ species of birds that breed in Canada and the United States. Maintained by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in partnership with The American Ornithologists’ Union, this comprehensive reference is authored by experts on each species. Each species account includes information on systematics, distribution, identification, behavior, breeding biology, and conservation. Each species account also includes a comprehensive bibliography of research conducted on the species. The accompanying multimedia includes photos of various plumages, examples of sounds, and videos of interesting behaviors. This reference resource is continually updated to ensure that it contains the latest information. There are usually 3-4 species account revisions published each month.

This combination package price represents a savings of over 20% if the items were purchased separately!
