I am so excited about the Great Backyard Bird Count! I’ve been studying the birds in our backyard every day to identify which types we have. I’ve seen as many as 12 different birds in a single day.
Since I last posted, I found an excellent site that gives the 50 most common birds in each state of America —Nifty Fifty State Bird Guides.
To help Sprite learn the birds, I created some flashcards with the most commonly seen birds of our area (west TN) plus a few extras to round out the set. (Depending on where you live, this set may not be suitable for your own backyard.)
And for the big count days, I made a checklist with thumbnails.

- [download id=”70″ format=”1″] with (the same) 18 common birds.
I hope that these printables help you for the big weekend.
