Given the holiday season, I imagine that birders aren’t sitting by their computers taking difficult quizzes.  We’re out birding and partying.

And returning those non-birding presents so we can purchase that glossy new bird guide for that trip we so very much want to go on.  And recovering from a late New Year’s Eve, followed by early Jan 1 birding.

So I have made this quiz easier.  No field marks!  The question to be answered is below.  The answer will be posted on Monday.

This chart compares two bird-related things.

One thing       Vs.       The other thing
Exactly 25                      More than 2,000
Exactly 15                       Exactly 15
Exactly 1                         Exactly 108
About 27                         More than 50,000,000

Questions: Have you ever?  If so, what is your favorite and why?

Bonus Question:  What is 250?

Gotta get my egg nog now.  Good Luck!

Jory's first field guide-identified bird was a Northern Cardinal. This turned out to be his gateway drug into birding. In 2007 Jory became the least accomplished birder to see 300 birds in New York State in one year. He has birded the world over but maintains his birding "beginner mind", of which he is inordinately proud. Just ask him. Jory is the 10,000 Birds Avian Quizmaster, coming up with ever more diabolical ways to stump his legion of devoted fans. He lives with his wife and the possessions of his children just outside of Albany NY.
