I give up! Readers of this blog are simply TOO gifted in the arena of avian identification. Corey can continue to try to stump you. I, on the other hand, will attempt to harness your wicked powers of perspicacity for good!

For example, following is a photo submitted by reader Jesse Boone of Atlanta, GA. Jesse snapped this shot a couple of years ago but never determined what kind of bird was in the photo. Can you?

(If this turns out to be too tough for you, I might be willing to let you know where the photo was taken!)
