2015 APRIL QUIZ:
"A bird quiz for you to do in your ‘sparrow’ time"
Have you noticed the ‘Little Brown” birds beginning to show up in your area? Some are quite streaky, some are plain, and some are a combination of the
two. Some even have bright splashes of whites and yellows to go with their cryptic browns, tans, and blacks. Sparrows make their living by scratching
and picking up seeds and insects from the ground. They spend most of
their time skulking and hiding in thickets and grassy fields but in the winter
you can attract many of these “Little Brown” birds to your feeding station.
This month’s challenge is to identify the five sparrow species shown below.
*For your answer to be accepted be sure to use the complete common name

Send your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org with
[April 2015 Quiz] in the subject line. At the end of the month,
the winning entries will be put into a drawing to win a copy of
Kenn Kaufman's Field Guide to Advanced Birding or a
Black Swamp Bird Observatory Winter Beanie!
