The card game Birds of North America is a simple questioning game similar to others by several manufacturers. The game instructions are missing but each card is marked with the name of a bird, and then with three questions related to that bird. In question games of this type, players win cards they correctly answer and lay them aside. The winner is usually the player with the most cards laid aside and therefore the most correct answers. Like other games of the late 19th century, this game teaches facts about birds as it entertains.
