Just plain feeder birds are too easy for 10,000 Birds readers to identify, even in diabolical format, so this diabolical identification quiz features flying feeder birds!  The three pictures below all depict feeder birds doing that activity for which birds are known and envied, flying!  Can you name what bird is in each of the three pictures?  Please put your answers in the comments, and make sure to identify the birds by their complete common names (so if you think one is a Song Sparrow call it a Song Sparrow, not sparrow or Melospiza melodia).  Good luck and good guessing!  Answers will be posted within five days.

diabolical flying feeder bird #2

diabolical flying feeder bird #3

I just hope this quiz is diabolical enough.  Somehow, I doubt it is…
