This quiz is truly diabolical. All three pictures show small fragments of birds that were photographed in Queens in the last two weeks. That is all the information you get.

Put your guesses in the comments, using the common names of species. So if you think the first picture is of a Song Sparrow please type something like “I think the first picture is a Song Sparrow.” Don’t type something like “sparrow” because that will neither help us figure out what picture you were guessing nor what species you were guessing it was.

The first to get all three earns the respect of birders everywhere and those who fail to guess all three but at least make an attempt will earn the respect of the few birders who bother to read the comments. Those who clicked through to this post and don’t guess will be shunned by all birders and birds forever and ever. Take a guess, jerk!

Without further ado…
