The state cards have the state birds on them.

As far as when you use Birds, Nests, and Eggs, I will say that it is scheduled to coordinate with the state being studied. For instance, when you study Maryland, you will read about the Northern (Baltimore) Oriole. Of course, you only read about the American Robin once although many states have it for the state bird (same with Cardinal, etc.). And, some of the birds in the BN&E book aren't state birds, so they are scheduled at different times. My dc love this book....believe it or not, it's hard to find books that show the birds, the nests, and the eggs.

A truly wonderful (and truly old) book about birds that we found in the non-fiction section in our library is by Marguerite Henry, the same author of the "Misty" fiction series: Birds at Home. The oversized book was gorgeous....I'd highly recommend anyone doing Adventures check to see if their library has this OOP book.
