MONTHLY BIRD PHOTO ID QUIZ
Identify each numbered species.
While infrequent, birds of the open sea do wander to Ohio from their oceanic wintering grounds from time to time, and can show up on any body of water in the state during migration. As much as we ALL would love to see an adult male Harlequin Duck or King Eider swimming around a local lake or reservoir, in Ohio we’re more likely to find females and young males en route to the coast. Keep these birds in mind while looking through scaup, mergansers, and cormorants…you never know when and where seabirds will show up!
[Hint: Because they’re typically brown or gray, it’s important to note where there is white on these birds.]
