Neotropical Birds: Free online reference site

Neotropical Birds is a free online reference resouce from the Cornell Lab of neotropical-birdsOrnithology. Following the acclaimed Birds of North America Online this new resource will provide life history information on birds from Central and South America.

Given the large number of Neotropical species and the relatively small amount of research that has been done on this group, Neotropical Birds is a resource that currently covers a very small number of species and will expand over time as more contributors and information are identified. Persons with experience and expertise with specific species are encouraged to consider contributing to this resource.

Another valuable aspect of the site is the identification of priorities for future research; from population surveys and taxonomic relationships to parental roles. A well-constructed resource that is worth investigating.
