2015 SEPTEMBER QUIZ:
"Beauty in the EYE of the beholder"
Can you identify which species these eyes belong to?
Each of these birds comes from an entirely different family, but as
individuals they all have unique eyes that set them apart from their relatives
and other birds. Whether it’s a flashy orbital ring or a showy iris, these
beautiful eyes are often overlooked or never even noticed as these birds
dart and glide past; but if you only had a fleeting glimpse of these birds’ eyes, would you be able to identify who they belong to?
[Hint: all species can be seen in Ohio, most year-round]
Send your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org with
[September 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,
Kenn Kaufman's Field Guide to Nature of the Midwest,
or a Black Swamp Bird Observatory Winter Beanie!
