Checklists on the occurrence and seasonal abundance of birds are available on this website (http://ak.audubon.org/birds/alaska-birding-checklists) for the state of Alaska as well as many of the regions, parks, refuges, and forests within the state. Various checklists are also available for the rest of the United States.
Leonard Peyton's Bird Songs of Alaska is a two disc CD collection of vocalizations and sounds from more than 260 species of birds found in Alaska. This audio production, from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's world-renowned Library of Natural Sounds, is the most comprehensive collection of bird sounds available for the state. This is a must for anyone wanting to improve their ability to identify Alaska birds by sound.
Because the CD features vocalizations not found on any other audio guide, researchers conducting studies in Alaska or other places where many of these birds are found, will find the guide indispensable. "Serious birders anywhere in North America will find the shorebird vocalizations especially helpful, as the birds make key migratory stop-overs on their way from their Alaskan and high arctic breeding grounds to their winter areas in South America," says Greg Budney, curator of the Library of Natural Sounds. Casual listeners will simply enjoy the voices of birds from Denali National Park, Tongass National Forest, the Aleutian Islands, and other faraway places where many of the recordings were made.
Birds Songs of Alaska is available through several commercial sources (search the internet).
The Alaska Wildlife and Aquatic Education Program of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=educators.main) provides many resources for teachers on birds, mammals, fish, amphibians, and habitats in Alaska.
This website (http://migration.pwnet.org/resource/archives.php) hosts several archived lesson plans on shorebirds, migration, and habitats in Alaska.
