The Newcomb book is good for wildflowers east of the Mississippi & north of Florida and Texas. This site is my go-to resource for ID'ing trees & shrubs at least to the genus level:
Dendrology at Virginia Tech

What's That Bug? Insect identification

I just found this site. I suspect Suunto is a more reliable source, but this isn't bad.

Here is a key-driven bird ID site that is sometimes very useful, sometimes not:
Birds of North America - Whatbird.com

That reminds me, I can't figure out what kind of owl Sylvatica's avatar is. Maybe a short-eared owl, or something from another country?

Indeed, it is from another country. Click here if you want to know what it is. (I would just say it, but I want to give you the option of figuring it out.)

It is a cool owl, Sylvatica.

I have iBirdPro on my iTouch, and use it all the time. You can get less expensive versions if you only want your own region, but I travel to California, Michigan and Texas fairly often so I opted for the whole country.

I too love owls! A friend of mine is a falcony and raptor rehabilitator who takes his birds on the road. He comes to my school every year and brings a variety of falcons, eagles and owls. He has a spectacled owl and an eagle owl, the largest owl in the world! Even bigger than a great horned and a great grey owl!
