Bird Bingo: Printable Game for Kids

Spot all kinds of birds—from a sparrow to a bald eagle, from a peafowl to a kiwi bird—mark them off on your card and “bingo!”.

Many know how to play bingo games. They are simple and quick, so players of various ages can equally enjoy them, and they frequently get incorporated into parties or social gatherings. Bingo games have a lot of educational benefits as well. They are good for developing fast reactions, memorizing pictures and words, and all the social aspects that can be learned while playing any board game (following rules, taking turns, winning and losing gracefully).

And what if players can learn something else while playing it? Well, that is a great bonus!

In this printable bird bingo game, players learn to identify birds! It comes with thirty-two bingo cards which will help educators balance out the complexity and modify the focus of the lesson.

As for the birds? There are forty-eight bird species and sixty-four unique bird pictures included in the bird bingo pack! Players will interact with familiar birds as well as birds from all over the world.

48 printable bird cards are included in this bingo game!

We also have a collection of other bingo games – dog bingo, flag bingo, or USA States bingo!

Printable Bird Bingo Cards

Bird Bingo game features a variety of bingo cards and birds that will help you tailor the game to your specific lesson.

Birds of the World Cards

Several bingo cards feature birds from all over the world, and they introduce the idea of bird diversity to the players.

Most of us know a few birds that we regularly see. Our area in Canada has chickadees, robins, bald eagles and blue jays. There are some of these familiar backyard birds in this part of the game, but there are also kakapo, the flightless parrot owls of New Zealand, or grey crowned cranes, the dancers of Africa.

Birds of Continents Bingo Cards

The second bird bingo pack features birds from particular continents only (North America, Eurasia, Australia and Oceania). Certain birds, such as sparrows, peregrine falcons, or barn owls, can be found on more than one continent, so they can be found on more than one card.

Male and Female Bingo Cards

Did you know that some male and female birds of the same species look different, especially during the mating and breeding seasons? On those cards intended to showcase the variety of birds in a region, species are depicted by a male in his brightest plumage. The last set of bingo cards, however, focuses on the differences within a species and showcases the difference between males and females. This bingo game works well as an extension of the match male and female bird activity.

Levels of Bingo Complexity

The printable Bird Bingo game contains 32 bingo cards. As you will see, when looking through the game, there are three distinct types of cards—type 1 features both the picture of the bird and its name, type 2 features only the pictures, and type 3 features only the name. Any of them can be used either as bingo cards (by printing one per player) or as tokens (by cutting the card).

Three types of bingo cards: picture and text, picture only, and text only

You can choose whichever combination of cards suits your needs and thus modify the level of game complexity.

For beginners, use the bingo cards with pictures and names AND also cut the same bingo cards to use as tokens. This way, the players will have both the picture and the text to rely on when deciding whether a bird token belongs on their card or not.

For advanced players, use the bingo cards with text only AND cut the cards with pictures only to use as tokens. The players will have no help to match the picture of the bird with its name but have to rely on their previous knowledge.

Bird Bingo for advanced players

Of course, all kinds of in-between variants are possible as well! Depending on the players’ previous knowledge and reading levels, choose whichever suits you best. In the case of an age or experience difference between the players, you can try giving them different cards as well.

More Ways to Play Bird Bingo?

Yes! The printable Bird Bingo is a very versatile game!

In the game, you will find rules for how to play it in a relaxed and non-competitive way, having a full card as the end goal, but also rules for how to play it in a fast and competitive manner, that will appeal to older players with more bird knowledge.

Besides that, you can use the cards for setting up a sorting activity or a memory game.
