2017 SEPTEMBER QUIZ:
Identify each numbered species.
With wide bills, long rictal bristles, plain camouflaged plumage, and masterful aerial skills, this family of birds is aptly named and lives up to its fly-hawking reputation. Frustrating to birders because of their similarities, flycatchers can best be deciphered by their voice and habitat. But when in the hand…things can get a little more complicated. Bird banders get a completely different view of these birds and rely solely on plumage and physical characteristics to properly identify them. Using field marks such as wingbars, bill color and size, plumage features, and body proportions, we challenge you to take on this subtly dynamic set of birds.
[Hint: each of these species commonly occurs in Ohio.]
