Quiz 4 - Hide n' Go Seek

Congrats to Tim Hajda, John Garrett, and Jason T for getting the last quiz. The answer is - Least Sandpiper (top) and Semipalmated Plover (bottom).

This new quiz shouldn't be too hard - if you can find the birds that is! Birds often like to hide in dense brush or camouflage themselves in their habitat - it's good to be able to ID them when you can only see bits and pieces! Also having a sharp eye helps.

Bonus points if you can ID all 5 species present. Yes, there really are 5 different species between the 3 photos!

Well, if it isn't too late to revise my answer, let me add to the top photo: Dark-eyed Junco, and Black-capped Chickadee.

I know I only found four, but I couldn't find the fifth.
