I’ll admit it… you guys are good. Our ID quizzes have evolved over the years to contend with and challenge the arrogant (oh, did I say that?) perspicacity of our readers. Corey is so scared of you eagle-eyed armchair ornithologists that he’s been reduced to posting blurry plumage pics, which many of you still recognize.
But I’m not intimidated by your birding brilliance. As a matter of fact, I’m prepared to offer up a full-body, brightly-lit bird for your ID pleasure. In fact, this waterfowl is even facing the camera, which was held by reader Len Blumin. Len shared this pic with me to share with you. So tell me, what is it?
