Bird Cigarette Cards

   Birds are among the most extensively studied of all animal groups. This is probably because they include a vast variety of species and their enviable talent for flying. Mankind has tried to imitate this skill for a long time, and only succeeded just over a hundred years ago. Birds also have a large repertoire of other skills, including the ability to imitate. Parrots can mimic human speech and studies have shown that African Grey Parrots are able to associate meaning with words.

  It would be impractical to list every bird cigarette card set ever issued and so I've listed a small selection of the more rare and unusual ones. I've provided scans of a sample card from each set and I've tried to list as many card titles as possible.
