In 1999, Bird Songs International proudly presented its third CD-ROM: "Birds of Venezuela / Aves de Venezuela", by Peter Boesman. This revolutionary CD-ROM contained 700 photographs, almost 1300 sound recordings (more than 7.5 hours!), and a complete set of distribution maps of 878 bird species. Everything presented in an extremely user-friendly format: any sound recording, any photo is seconds away, accessible by just a few keyclicks! Please read the reviews!

Contained photos and/or sounds of 10 species of Tinamous, 42 Hawks and Falcons, 11 Guans & Curassows, 31 Parrots, 24 nightbirds, 40 Hummingbirds, 13 Toucans, 57 Ovenbirds and Woodcreepers, 65 Antbirds, 122 Flycatchers and many more.

This CD-ROM is bilingual. At installation time one must choose between English and Spanish (you can even install both languages!).

Peter Boesman started birding in his native country Belgium when he was twelve (now 30 years ago). He studied Venezuelan birds in the field for the last ten years (of which seven years as a resident). He discovered a wealth of new information and published several articles on Venezuelan birds. Throughout the years, he also accumulated a large collection of sound recordings and photographs (for several species those were the first ever obtained). Although he lived on three different continents during the last three years, his interest stays focused on the Neotropics, and Peter continues working on more projects with Neotropical Birds.
