North American Bird Feather Replicas® Set: Wetland & Seashore Birds
North American Bird Feather Replicas Set: Wetland & Seashore Birds
Created by Acorn Naturalists, these accurate, life-size feather replicas are scanned directly from permitted feather collections. Use these feather replicas to “seed” trails and have young explorers find and collect them. Spread them out on a table and have students organize, classify, and study key feather features. Our feather replicas are precisely laser-cut and presented on a template; each feather “pops out” individually from the sheet. The template is printed locally on thick, waterproof paper made from inorganic materials. No trees or toxic agents (such as bleaching chemicals) are used in the manufacture of this green resource. As needed, the feathers can be cleaned in warm soapy water. Feather replicas are recommended for ages 8 to adult.
This 17" x 11" feather template features the following species: Pintail, Common Merganser, Black-Crowned Night Heron, Ring-Billed Gull, Heermann’s Gull, California Gull, Common Tern, Forster’s Tern, Sandhill Crane, Sabine’s Gull, Double-Crested Cormorant, Great Blue Heron, Trumpeter Swan, and Mallard Duck.
The individual feathers shown on the left below the main image are paired: the first one is the dorsal (top) side, the second is the ventral (under) side of the feather. The individual feathers shown occur in the order listed above. Feather replicas are printed on both sides (thus showing both the dorsal and ventral side of each feather).
Template Dimensions: 17" L x 11" H (folded on the left at approximately 5")
