CORNELL LAB OF ORNITHOLOGY SPECIES ACCOUNTS
I also used to write and edit species accounts for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Neotropical Birds Online, which were integrated into their new Birds of the World database in 2020. Here are links to the five entries I am credited for as lead author:
Violaceous Euphonia (Euphonia violacea) (quite possibly the most lovely bird name ever)
Banded Cotinga (Cotinga maculata)
Spangled Cotinga (Cotinga cayana)
Plum-throated Cotinga (Cotina maynana)
Purple-breasted Cotinga (Cotinga cotinga)
