Fifty of the species are common across the continent, and the remaining fifty are equally divided between common Eastern and Western species.

    1. Hi Jan, It is similar to the key in the field guides, and I’ve posted a copy of it above. I’ll let the publisher know and see if we can add it to the card sets in the future.

    1. I don’t find a set of flash cards that just covers the eastern birds, however, this set has 25 clearly labeled cards featuring eastern birds, and 50 cards that feature birds found all over the North American continent. The remaining 25 cards feature birds found only in the west.

  1. I need help with sparrows. Do you have flashcards for swamp, tree, white throat, white crown, fox etc? I need to see them side by side. Thanks

  2. Is there a distributor that has charitable connections? I was hoping the Audoban Society or the likes, but was disappointed they use you images and don’t sell your books!

    1. Hi Sara,
      Thanks for your interest! Lots of local Nature Centers sell books and other products. Many of them are associated with Audubon chapters and many are associated with other local conservation groups. I think if you search for nature shops or nature centers in your area you’ll find a place to buy these cards where your purchase will help support conservation efforts.
      Good Birding,

  3. I don’t find a card for varied thrush. I’m in NW WA. Does the “Backyard Birding” flashcards include the varied thrush? It’s a common bird here.
