BirdSleuth Bird ID Cards

Each one of the 38 full-color laminated cards provides information on one of the most common birds (click here for a full list of birds). They are a great way to teach bird identification: each child in a group can become an expert on a bird or an individual can quiz herself on the bird names. There are also fun and easy-to-play games suggested, as well as BirdSleuth trivia questions and cool facts on every card. The cards also come in our Most Wanted Birds kit.  $14.95 for a set of 38 cards in our online store.

    I am looking for a “wingspan” chart to be used for a summer program at our county library. I want to be able to measure each child’s armspan and compare them to a bird’s wingspan. Can you help?
