Here is a challenge for those who like to spend their time close to water.
An accurate reflection should give a good image of the original, but as birders know, conditions are seldom perfect. Even the tiniest ripple or disturbance on the water can distort the reflection. There should still be enough to name these well-known birds which were seen in the south-west of the USA during the early part of the year and are commonly associated with water. There should be no identification issues if these birds were seen in normal conditions. Can you name all of them?
Enjoy the easy ones before they start getting tricky!
As always, The Management will be furnishing prizes for the most inventive answers. The winner on this occasion will receive the collected emails from Corey to his Beat Writers, including the all-time favourite Christmas ’13 motivational missive (you may recall this one from Corey’s Youtube video in which he wishes all the readers of 10,000 Birds a “Happy Christmas” through the medium of interpretive dance). So, it’s all to play for.
Answers will be appended to this post in a week or so.
Thanks for trying and jolly well done to Larry and Martina who got all 6.
