Test Your Knowledge of Passerines – The Answers

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 enjoyed a little quiz to test your knowledge.  Below is a list of passerines which we have already profiled – oops – along with one we haven’t profiled yet!  (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.)

How’d you do on the photos?  And the songs/calls?  Check out the answers below and read our previously published blogs on nine of the species.

  1. Your presentation of information is just outstanding. I have learned so much through the process you use – challenging your readers to identify by song or picture. Keep up the great work!
