The Cornell Lab of Ornithology will release Birds of the World in early 2020. It includes 10,721 species accounts and 249 family overviews.

Birds of the World will provide scientists, students, conservationists, and birders with the sharpest picture yet of the biology of the world's birdlife. For questions about birds, this promises to be the resource. It will be entirely on-line.

It is described here, including a video (2m 48 s) narrated by Cornell's Lab of Ornithology director Jim Fitzpatrick, where you may also sign-up for updates.

It is a incredible contribution.
