Audubon Plush Birds
When it comes to teaching kids, especially the younger kind, I like to combine hands-on materials as much as I can. So when we started learning about bird watching and identification based on their sounds, I love using the Audubon plush birds collection. Each bird is carefully designed to be realistic and each one plays it’s own song or noise!
Audubon’s mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.
For more than a century, Audubon has built a legacy of conservation success by mobilizing the strength of its network of members, chapters, Audubon centers, state offices, and dedicated professional staff to connect people with nature and the power to protect it.
A powerful combination of science, education, and policy expertise combine in efforts ranging from protection and restoration of local habitats to the implementation of policies that safeguard birds, other wildlife, and the resources that sustain us all—in the U.S. and across the Americas.
About Audubon Plush Birds:
Our collection of birds are soft, cuddly and educational. Created in conjunction with the Audubon Society, each plays its own unique and realistic bird song, provided by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. From backyard birds to majestic birds of prey, geese and ducks, you can build a flock one-by-one, two-by-two or by gaggles at a time. These are the perfect way to bring bird-watching into your home.
Beyond a few birds like the cardinal, peacock, and maybe a few parrots, there aren’t many birds I can identify by sight or their song. And mostly, the ones I do know is because they are in my backyard (the cardinal), distinct like the peacock, or I’ve owned them as pets (parrots).
So when the little ones start asking questions about the types of birds in the areas we are learning about with homework, I was excited to find the Audubon plush birds! The kids could play with them, yes, but they can also identify characteristics about each type of bird we’re working on. Plus, there’s a voicebox inside each animal that recreates their song for the kids to hear.
And it’s not just domestic birds either, but they also include birds from the rain forest, mountain regions, snowy climates, and more.
While we’re building up our collection as we travel or learn about new regions in the world, I like having these Audubon plush birds to help teach and excite the kids further. And yes, they love to play with them just like any other stuffed animal!

You know this would make a great gift for my son. He has everything he could want or need, but absolutely loves animals. He especially loves to learn about them (thank you Wild Kratts 🙂 Thanks for the post!
