Neotropical News

February 14-17 (Friday to Monday) is the 17th annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC). To participate, just go birding during this timeframe and make sure to enter your checklists in eBird.
Twenty years after field ornithologist Ted Parker's death, friends and colleagues pay tribute to Ted and his legacy.
Thousands of new images are now visible for most species cataloged in Neotropical Birds Online, thanks to a slideshow gallery ported into each account that scrolls through images found in our Neotropical Birds Online flickr group.
We've reached a major milestone: today we have added information for every single species of bird in the Neotropics. Anyone can now search for any Neotropic species and find life history data, an audio sample and a distribution map.
