For Bird Lovers

I know there are several bird lovers out there, so I thought of you guys when I saw these Vintage Teach Me About Birds Flash Cards. The ebay auction includes a 1962 complete boxed set of 48 bird flash cards measuring 6 inches wide and 3 inches across. The seller has a Buy It Now offer for these cards at $49.99, which isn't too bad considering the last set went for $56.01. The illustrations are quite lovely.

These are really cool - I love all the old flash cards. Also, the eye charts are nice too. I don't think I could spend $50 on the flash cards....I am always hoping I will come across a set at a thrift store for like 99 cents, you know?!

My husband and his family are all crazy for birds. They know all of their names and the sounds they make. They would love these. I'm tempted to get them and hang onto them until father's day or something. You do find the most interesting things, Diana! -Julia

Yes - wouldn't it be wonderful to find these at a yard sale?!

What a great Father's Day gift idea - I'm sure they would love it!

Oh Diana, you taunt me so! When I win the lotto can I hire you to be my personal shopper?

If I ever run across these cards at a yard sale, I will pick them up for littlebyrd. You never know.

Adorable! I would frame 3 or 4 and hang them in my foyer, and then change them for 3 or 4 different ones a few months later.
