LANIUS InFlight is a software program that presents a compilation of 129 species accounts originally prepared in book format by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

LANIUS InFlight is designed to store, display, and report data contained within the USDA Forest Service's Neotropical Migratory Bird Reference Book (Volume 1) for the Pacific Southwest Region.

Taxonomic information (i.e., Family and Order names) and management status information (e.g., Federally Endangered, Forest Service Sensitive, etc.) is also included in the database for each species.

The INFLIGHT database is a Read-Only database: you can only read the data within the database tables. You will not be able to add new records, edit existing records, or delete existing records while using the INFLIGHT database program.

You can use INFLIGHT to view information on any of the species in the Neotropical Migratory Bird Reference Book and to print this information, on a species by species basis, out to your printer.
