Backyard Birding Flashcards
“I bought this beautiful deck for my children to share with their grandmother when she visits. They spend hours at the kitchen table, looking out the window at the many birds who visit at our feeders, and this set has been a wonderful way and fun way for them to learn a little more about those special visitors!”

Meet the Maker: David Sibley
David Sibley, an American ornithologist, has written and illustrated a number of books, most notably his Sibley Guides series. The series began with the publication of The Sibley Guide to Birds in 2000, and since then has expanded to include four additional books on birds and, in 2009, The Sibley Guide to Trees. Through his work he hopes to reveal the larger patterns and systems of nature by learning what makes each species different from (and similar to) other species.
