When preparing a birdtrip to Venezuela, the selection of birdsounds is a labour-intensive and time-consuming task. Now Peter Boesman has done this work for the birdwatcher visiting Venezuela. The sounds for this production were carefully selected, checked and integrated by him. Every recording includes embedded information such as English name, scientific name, date and time of recording, locality name with coordinates, recordist, and in some cases further remarks or comments about background species. This information can be consulted in standard software like Windows Media Player, iTunes and even on some MP3 players like the iPod series. Typically several soundfiles per species are included, e.g. to illustrate different types of vocalizations, to illustrate some degree of geographical variation or to document vocalizations from different corners of a bird's distribution.

Most of the recordings have been taken by Peter Boesman in Venezuela itself during the years he used to live there and his many trips all over the country in the last 10 years. To increase the overall comprehensiveness an important number comes from other (surrounding) neo-tropical countries. Peter could use his database of over 23,000 recordings from the Neotropics. While this formed an excellent basis to start from, it is thanks to the many contributions of other recordists that this comprehensiveness could be achieved.
