All About Birds is created by the staff of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. It’s our aim to make this site the Web’s best and most comprehensive resource for North American birds, bird watching, and bird conservation—accessible to everyone for free.
It’s all part of the Cornell Lab’s mission: to interpret and conserve the earth's biological diversity through research, education, and citizen science focused on birds. The Cornell Lab is a nonprofit organization supported by friends and members. We invite you to become a member too.
