We thought you might need a break from all the clean-up work left by Hurricane Matthew so grab a piece of paper and pen and test your knowledge!
We began our “Bird of the Week” series in March and we hope you have been able to learn a few things about our feathered friends. This week we hope you will enjoy a little quiz to test your knowledge. Below is a list of passerines which we have already profiled (and one we haven’t profiled – oops!). (A passerine is a type of bird most notable by the arrangement of their toes, three pointing forward and one back, which facilitates perching. They are sometimes known as perching birds or, less accurately, as songbirds.)
Can you match the name of each bird to their photo? Don’t forget that some of the photos may be of the female bird which may look different than the male bird of the same species.
For extra credit match the song to each bird as well! We will publish the answers on Sunday. Good luck!!!
Extra Credit – Match to the song/call
