The Cornell Lab of Ornithology has packaged together its Cornell Guide to Bird Sounds: Essential Set for North America (includes 1,379 cuts of common sounds from 729 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 Essential Set and to establish a 6 month 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 Essential Set includes examples of the most common sounds (including vocal and mechanical sounds) for each of the 729 bird species that regularly breed in the United States and Canada. The Essential Set is a culmination of nine decades of effort by more than 300 recordists, researchers and archivists.

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 30% if the items were purchased separately!
