IF YOU’VE READ Solving Shorebirds, perhaps you’re ready for my Shorebird Challenge. Actually, if you’re new to plovers and sandpipers, this challenge may be difficult. That’s because bills aren’t in play in each of these six quiz photos.
The challenge starts easy and gets progressively worse, er, I mean tougher. This is an open-book test – you’re free to use your field guide. Take your time; take a deep breath.
Click on any image for an answer, which includes bills in some shots. Then click on the answer image to jump back up to the quiz. Click back-and-forth all you want. I’ll add a few more photos soon.
This is hard. I think I’ll take a break and learn to ID sparrows.
thanks, very informative
That was fun, but I flunked!
I guess this all means that we just need to go find some more.
Excellent photography, as always and such great information on shorebirds. I thank thee, Bryan the natural educator of all things nature.
Most fun I had all day! Thanks!
