So that does it for this week’s quiz. I thank everyone for participating. On Monday I will publish Quiz #6.
Hey I got this one!!
Great, David. We’ll try again on Monday. 🙂
Oh dear, Bob! I should have looked it up before guessing! The Acorn Woodpecker is superb, by the way.
Sorry, Jo. Thanks for the comment. 🙂
I love these quizzes! Thanks for all of your effort at putting these together! They really help me (i’m a new birder!) I was surprised that most people got this right (I did!) as I found this difficult!
Thank you very much, Michele. I’m glad you got it right. And I am as surprised as you are that so many people did get it right, too. It is fun doing this. I just hope that I can keep thinking up more quizzes. The next one will be published on Monday.
I learned something about the ladder-backed. I realized that in Alta we have a three toed woodpeckerthat has either a black back or ladder back. That threw me off a bit.It has a yellow poll.
Thanks for your comment, Jane.
