Here we go again. This second quiz garnered more votes than the first one, so it seems that the interest in them are growing. I, for one, am really enjoying them, but of course I have an advantage. I know the answer. But I hope more of you are starting to use some photo guides to help you along. It is not cheating to do so. I encourage it. This is the original picture that you were asked to identify.
So after a world-wide vote of 84 votes, here is the final tabulation:
- Spotted Towhee 39
- Black-headed Grosbeak 19
- American Robin 18
- Orchard Oriole 7
- Dark-eyed Junco 1
The correct answer is Spotted Towhee. That means that nearly half of you readers got it right. That’s not bad, as the wrong answers were birds that are very similar. as these pictures show.
So that does it for Quiz #2. I will let you digest this for the evening. Tune in tomorow, Saturday morning for the always exciting, Quiz #3. 🙂
Have you done this lately? This is a great idea!! You could use WordPress’ polling feature. Fun stuff.
I was doing it on a regular basis, but somewhere I go away from it. I will think about doing it again. 🙂
I’m enjoying your quizzes a lot Bob! I got it right again.
I thought that you would probably pick ’em right, Mia 🙂 Next one is tomorrow and I bet you’ll get it right, too. Msaybe I need to start being a bit more devious. 🙂
Well, at least I was able to correctly state that it wasn’t a Robin, but that didn’t qualify me as knowing the correct ID, LOL!
I don’t suppose you would tell me what you voted it was. 🙂
New one tomorrow. 🙂
LOL! I didn’t. I simply stated that it was not an American Robin. 😉
2 for 2.. the eyes were the give away again. This is fun and I agree educational because we get use to just seeing birds in our own area and with the pc and photos we can really expand our bird watching..thanks so much for starting this..look forward to Saturday..
Thanks for commenting, Syl. You are batting 1000 now so far. I have the next one written and ready to publish tomorrow morning. Tune in. 🙂
Great fun! And so educational too. Thanks for doing this, Bob. I’m starting to look at the birds around us with different eys now. 🙂
Super! That’s what I like to hear, Ted. Thanks, 🙂
YAY YAY!! I got it right. 😀 😀 There is something “Towhee” about this bird. Hehehe 😀
Thanks, Bob. 🙂
Cute, Nandini, cute. 🙂 Wait until tomorrow to see what you can do with the next one. 🙂
Woohoo – I got it right! I did learn a bunch by researching the choices and having all the birds together now is even more instructive. This is so much fun. Can’t wait til tomorrow!
That’ great. Beth. Congrats! I am glad that so many people are enjoying these. 🙂
This is great fun Bob…I’ll start using the bird guide. I’m 0 for 2. At least I didn’t pick the obvious wrong answer. Head held down low…
That’s great, David. I mean that you are having fun. I am working on the next one as we speak. 🙂
Well I thought it was an Orchard Oriole but then I’ve never seen any of them before! Next time I’m definitely using a guide! 🙂
Well, better luck tomorrow in the new 3rd quiz. 🙂
Thanks, Bob! I’ll do my best.
Yeah! I got it right! As a new birder, I LOVE these quizes! Thanks so much!
Great, Michelle. Ain’t birding fun????
