The Pecking Order – download and play at home

Did you know?

This half term, things are a little bit different. Whilst you may not be able to visit Harewood in person, we are bringing a little of the Harewood Bird Garden to you! We’ve created a brand new game for you,  The Pecking Order so you can enjoy some of your favourite feathered friends at home, whilst learning about the importance of their conservation.

Our colourful card game represents the 300+ birds in the Bird Garden, with a ‘Top Trumps’ style game, created to celebrate the 50th anniversary this year.

Download four new cards each day for the next two weeks, so you can build up your collection and play your own game at home. There are 56 in total to collect, ready to be downloaded and printed out. Just click on the thumbnails below, or click the links on the right, to print your cards each day.

Learn fun facts about each of our Harewood birds, find out what their ‘wow’ factor is, scored across size, weight, intelligence, lifespan and risk of extinction, taking on board at the same time the importance of working to continue and protect these birds, through the breeding programmes we take part in.

We’ve also included some instructions so you can find out how to play!
