2016 OCTOBER QUIZ:
Identify each numbered species.
October is the month Mother Nature puts on her best colors. Red, orange, yellow and many other fabulous fall colors brighten the landscape. This is also the month the “Little Brown” birds begin to show up.
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.
