As always, the “Just for Fun Avian ID Quiz” is brought to you by Jory Langner, our esteemed Avian Quizmaster. This week’s quiz is short and sweet though more clues will be added if it turns out no one can figure it out…we 10,000 Birds bloggers are confident that our readership can “get it in one.”
There is only one clue today. It is a possibility that the quiz can be solved using this one clue. If no correct answers are posted, additional clues will be provided until someone figures it out.
As always, the answer is one of the regularly occurring birds in the ABA area (Code 1-3).
Here’s the clue:
QUESTION … What is this species?
EXTRA CREDIT: What is that ‘thing’ and what do they use it for?
Good luck! And stay tuned for additional clues (if they’re needed) and the answer.
wild stab: Roseate spoonbill, used for finding food.
Wild Turkey? It’s Thanksgiving time… the wattle sort of looks like an exclamation point. I dunno. I’m putting little thought into this.
I’ll jump off from Patrick’s start and guess Mountain Quail.
nope … neither Wild Turkey nor Roseate Spoonbill.
I think Jory needs his own 10000 Birds account.
I was going to guess Wild Turkey, but since that’s not right, I’ll guess that ! is an American Bittern standing very still.
