2017 MAY/JUNE QUIZ:
Identify which species each numbered tail belongs to.
Warblers can be notorious for their inability to sit still. Flitting high in the trees and among the vegetation in search of their insect prey, warblers are constantly on the move, only occasionally sitting long enough to allow for a full body view. When in full view, spring warblers are fairly straightforward to identify. But then there are other times when you’re only afforded a brief glimpse of a bird as it flies away or hops behind a leaf. For this quiz we’ve selected five warblers with diagnostic tail patterns. Learning tail patterns can greatly increase your identification skills in the field, helping to narrow down a fleeting bird to its genus or even species.
[Hint: All of these warblers can commonly be found in migration or breeding in Ohio.]
