2017 JULY/AUGUST QUIZ:
Identify each numbered species.
Summer may have just started, but soon enough we will start to see shorebirds rolling through Ohio again as fall migration begins. A beautiful group of birds with intricate patterning and stunning tones, shorebirds aren’t always the easiest to identify, especially while they’re still undergoing molt. While size can be a great clue as to the ID of a shorebird, without a Killdeer nearby size can be difficult to gauge. Therefore, you must watch the behavior of each bird and look at things such as bill shape and length, leg color, facial patterns and colors, patterns on the back feathers, and markings along the breast and belly to help identify this group of birds.
[Hint: each of these species can occur in Ohio and aren’t necessarily birds photographed in fall.]
