As always, the “Just for Fun Avian ID Quiz” is brought to you by Jory Langner, our esteemed Avian Quizmaster.
Wednesday we started this week’s quiz by publishing a single clue. We said it was possible to guess the identity of the answer with that single clue. Congratulations to Jason who had the correct answer (and thanks to Harry, Patrick and John for guessing). The clue of “!” is clearly a field mark of the Mountain Quail, with that “thing” on its head though Roseate Spoonbill, Wild Turkey, and American Bittern were certainly good guesses.
The extra credit question was “What is that ‘thing’ and what do they use it for?” No one has given any suggestions about this. I have researched and cannot find any answers. Any help on this one?
Stay tuned for another quiz next week.
