Bridget Farmer's long awaited second book is finally here and with it the new card game! (This listing is for the card game. See separate listing for the book.)
The Bush Birds game consists of 48 cards - 4 sets of 12 designs depicting different native Australian birds commonly found in open forests and woodlands. The cards come in a sturdy 2 piece box.
Included are instructions on how to play a number of different games, such as Go Fish (Go Birding!), snap and memory games, as well as encouraging players to invent their own games with the cards. There are also 4 info cards with details about each bird.
Birds included in this book - White-browed Scrubwren, Red-browed Finch, White-winged Chough, Spotted Pardalote, Diamond Firetail, Scarlet Robin, Grey Shrikethrush, Brown Treecreeper, Golden Whistler, Dusky Woodswallow, White-plumed Honeyeater, Fantailed Cuckoo.
The cards are a large size, measuring 9 x 13cm. Please note these are slightly different dimensions to the Kookaburra Kookaburra card game due to The Bush Birds being part of a new range.
The illustrations are all created from dry point etchings which have been hand coloured with watercolour paints.
