Ornithological Worldwide Literature

The Ornithological Worldwide Literature (OWL) is a compilation of citations and abstracts from the worldwide scientific literature that pertain to the science of ornithology. Its coverage includes the “gray” literature, which are not abstracted by commercial databases such as Zoological Record or the Science Citation Index.

OWL is a joint effort between the American Ornithological Society, British Ornithologists' Union, and Birdlife Australia.

The database is currently offline. We are looking for solutions to restore it as soon as possible.
