A couple of days in San Francisco over the New Year caused me to reflect on how much information we actually need to identify a bird. Corey’s devilish warbler quizzes have shown that some people, given the tiniest amount of detail, are capable of superhuman feats of recognition.
The air was so still at times this week that the reflections were almost perfect, but just a tiny ripple or bubble on the surface of the water causes enough distortion to make identification more of a challenge. Give these a try.
I might be tempted to have a go at the first five, but they become progressively more difficult after that, so I shall leave them to the experts.
These are trickier, but there are clues if you can pick up on them. Don’t look at them for too long or your eyes will go funny.
As ever, The Management will be furnishing fabulous prizes for anyone who gets them all correct.
They were all taken in San Francisco at the end of December. Best of luck.
How did you get on?
I only got 8 out of ten and I have the original photographs!
