Birders love Photo ID quizzes. Or, at least, they certainly get a lot of attention. Maybe we like tackling the finer points of bird ID when the obvious stuff is obscured. Or maybe those of us who are adept at taking poor bird photos hold out hope that our headless, branch-obscured, butt shots can find a use somewhere. In any case, we at the ABA are happy to provide you with myriad opportunities to test your mettle against weird photos of birds, both in Birding magazine as well as on the website with our venerable monthly photo quiz (produced since 2003!), edited by Tony Leukering.
In the past we’ve had hundreds of entries, but the latest offering only attracted around 50. Sure there are no prizes other than a little bit of notoriety, but we can do better than that, right?
This month’s brain-buster features an yellowish, eye ringed passerine. Take a crack at it and submit your answers by the end of the month. Good luck!
