Awesome Board Games About Birds

All of our pets may have fur and not feathers, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a vast appreciation for the beauty of our feathered friends. Seeing (or hearing) a new bird during our adventures always leads to joint research to discover what it is and the unique qualities it has. And it always makes me wish I knew more bird species. Luckily, we’ve found an easy (and fun!) way to increase our bird knowledge.

There is a wonderful selection of educational board games about birds that you family can play together.

Use this list of bird board games for kids and adults to educate your family about a large variety of birds, habitats, wingspans, nests, and more.

Board games about birds

This is probably one of my favorite lists of educational board games for families to play because it includes one of my gateway games: Wingspan.

Below is a list of bird board games, some details about them, and some of my favorite aspects (if we’ve played them.) You’ll find bird games for kids, easy bird card games, board games for birders, and more in the list.

Not only was Wingspan our “gateway” game into heavier board games, it was also my first solo play. Not gonna lie – solo play for Wingspan is super relaxing to me and that is huge.

If you’re considering getting Wingspan, I highly recommended doing two things: watch the video below (it’s the one we watched to get started) and follow the Quick-Start Guide that comes with it. We were super intimidated by trying a more complex game, but these two things simplified it tremendously!

How easily can kids play? Depends on their attention span, in my opinion. Our daughter (age 4.5) likes to look at the pretty birds, sort eggs, place eggs, hand out food, and use the dice tower – but that’s about it. She’s a great helper, but definitely not in a place to play on her own. We’ve been wanting to try these Wingspan co-operative rules to see if that makes it more fun.

  • English (Publication Language)

Bird Bingo is a family favorite. It was only of our first purchases for “gameschooling” type games and it has been a huge hit in our house for years. It’s typical bingo, but with birds and more beautiful artwork, that’s accompanied with a book that has information about each bird on the board.

If you’re looking for board games about birds for kids and families, this is the one. We’ve been playing this with our daughter since she was 3ish.

Songbirds Card Game

No products found.

If you’re looking for a more portable bird game to play, Songbirds is a good option. It’s a small boxed game that relies mostly on cards with no board so it’s much more suited to carrying around.

Songbirds also has a solo mode which I’ve played numerous times and still struggle to “win” based off of the points. But it’s entertaining enough for me to keep trying!

Match a Pair of Birds: A Memory Game

While I would argue that Bird Bingo can easily be used as a memory matching game for birds, this game might be better suited for this if you’re looking for a more compact and dedicated bird matching game.

Match a Pair of Birds is pretty self-explanatory, but one thing to note is that it’s matching a male and female pair of birds. It’s a great way to take a look at the differences between them and encourage further study of the bird.
