Quiz #2 – Saturday, April 21, 2012


Okay folks, get out your bird guides and prepare to answer this question: What bird is this??  Our first quiz was well received and every seems to be having a lot of fun with it.  Please select your choice of what bird you think it is, in the poll below the picture.  If you’re not sure, take a guess.  No one will know what your selection is.  Maybe you will get hooked and become a real birder. 🙂  By the way, it is not “cheating” to use your bird guide.  The purpose of my having these quizzes it to get you to into reading your guides, and discovering the differences in the species.  And you will have the best chance of getting the correct ID especially on this quiz.

  1. I’m having an educated guess at this one, Bob, because I have seen it in one of your previous posts. I could be wrong, because we don’t have most of the birds you see over here, and I haven’t looked back at the posts, or in a book because we don’t have any bird books! I just want to see if I am right from memory! I have voted for Spotted Towhee!

    I’m going to feel like a right ‘wally’ if I’m wrong!

    Cheers

  2. The eastern cousin of this bird is one that we see and hear around here quite frequently 🙂 This time I did not even have to consult my bird book (but I would have had to over a year ago!!).

    • I didn’t offer the Eastern Spotted as a choice as I thought people might get confused, as they were once defined as only one specie. Thanks for the comment, and I am glad that you are enjoying my quizzes. 🙂

  3. Fun idea for these quizzes Bob. By the way, if you’d like to be quizzed, I’m just back from my cruise, and I’ve definitely got some birds that need identifying. Not sure when I’ll get to posting their pictures, but I can let you know if you’d like!

  4. Such a lovely shot..Nature just really amazes me daily with its beauty and wonder. Love the quiz..and it is keeping me sharpened in seeing who is really at my bird feeders. Take care and have a great Super Saturday..I am off to my little Golden Pond..
