    Awesome Jim only had three I was uncertain with. #5 I thought was a tail instead of a bill, and mismatched the scaups.Thanks

  2. Quetzal says:

    It required some thinking. Great quiz!

  3. jenn says:

    Made me think and I learned some things. Liked it! Thanks!

  4. Thomas Wood says:

    I managed to get 21 of 25. Not blowing up #35 enough to notice the eggs, I put the House Wren in the brush pile there and put the Turkey where the wren should be. #28 I thought was a willow at the edge of a lagoon, so I put the Green Heron in there and didn’t know what to do with the Saw-whet Owl. And, somehow I failed to notice the Lesser Scaup bill so didn’t know what to do with that bird. This is a lot of fun, so thanks for exercising the brain cells!

    Thanks for doing this. It tested my field skills and I learned quite a bit as well as feeling success when my picks were correct. I just don’t get image #13, which looks like a human construction to me.
