Here are a few testimonials from users who participated in our pilot project to test out the flashcards with children in schools and nature camps. We would love to hear from you as well, whether you purchased the Early Bird material for an individual child or for a group environment!

We have used the flashcards during our Nature Camp for students to Maredumelli Reserve Forest. The normally mischievous students were very excited and were totally engrossed in the game and also trying to out do each other.

We liked the concept. The cards are designed nicely, very attractive. Whoever comes across any card, picks it up ! That's the power and positive about designing (and selected images). The thing we liked more about these cards is the activity / nature game that can be conducted using these cards. This will surely help people to identify birds, learn about their habitat, behaviour, their look-alikes and also remember them ! "Fun Facts" explained in "True or False" format are just perfect for kids and that is something kids can relate to easily 🙂

We used the card on a few occasions, both with children and adults. It is a great tool for introducing birds to kids and they enthusiastically take in the information. The cards are so well designed that, I hope every child can get their hands on it.

The cards have very good information and very clear pictures for easy identification. If they can be custom assembled from a larger set to suit the requirement of different regions, It will be better. For example, birds of chennai, birds of mysore... etc can be generated from a master set. This may make better sense when you are introducing or using them to teach local bird diversity.

I love the cards and so have most of the children. Kudos to the team! The flash cards have been very helpful as a useful tool to convey to the students details about the bird/s sighted in the field. The participant, whatever the age, gets instantly drawn to the image/s of the bird and other descriptive information. The size of the cards is also an ideal size to handle in the field.

These cards are a blessing to any amateur birder as they kindle their interest in birds. Kudos for putting something so mesmerising together.

I just had an opportunity to use the flash cards a few days back. I would like to say that it was a very good idea and the trivia helped get the children interested. It is very nicely thought of and well designed.

I think the production quality is really good. The concept is also excellent. Maybe in the future there could be something like a small manual with the cards with more ideas for activities which an educator can use. This will ensure that the students don't get familiar too quickly with the information given and the game and thus lose interest.
