Popular Nature Site Launches Online Bird Audio Database
eNature.com has this week launched a bird audio database with the individual bird calls for 553 species of North American birds.  Each bird call can be listened to immediately in real time right from the eNature site, for free.    eNature.com
Bird Audio at eNature

http://www.enature.com/audio/audio_home.aspeNature Bird Audio Library
The songs and calls of more than 550 North American birds can now be heard online. Just click on one of the sample names below to hear.   Long-legged Waders - Herons - Ibises - Limpkin - Cranes - Storks
The URL to the Bird Audio database main page is http://www.enature.com/audio/audio_home.asp

All bird sounds at eNature.com have been authentically recorded from the field.  All you need to listen to the bird calls is Quicktime version 4, which is a free plug-in that most people have already enabled on their computers.  If you don't already have it, the eNature site will direct you to the location where it can be easily downloaded for free.

In addition to the new Bird Audio content, eNature features over 3,400 different species of wildlife, with 4,220 color photographs. Philip Pfeifer of eNature commented about the launch "We've added bird calls to most of our bird species but this is just the first step.  We plan to add the natural sounds of just about all the wildlife we feature as well as nature audioscapes for various habitats and lifezones."

For further information about the new bird audio database or about any content on eNature.com contact Philip Pfeifer at ppfeifer@enature.com .
