Birds of the World (BOW) replaces and expands Birds of North America and HBW Alive. Birds of The World contains 10,721 species accounts from every bird species in the world and is a new scientific publication that merges and enhances content, data, multimedia, figures, and illustrations from four different ornithological volumes: Birds of North America (BNA), Neotropical Birds, Handbook of Birds of the World (HBW Alive), and Bird Families of the World.

This content is now delivered on a new digital platform and is integrated with multimedia from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Macaulay Library and millions of bird records from eBird.
