Bird A comes to us from volunteer Ruthellen down in Florida. She reports that the bird had a wing chord of 38cm, culmen of 55mm and a tarsus of 38mm. I’m sure our southern friends won’t have any trouble with this one, but you northerners give it a try too!

Bird B, found by Melissa Buhler in June, is a youngster–nearly a fledgling– and might present more of a challenge to you. But I have no doubt that you Seanetters will come through!

Answers to be revealed tomorrow!

Word has gotten around that I spent a large part of yesterday on a dead bird quiz and now I’m starting to get concerned looks… Unfortunately, I am still stumped. My two wild guesses are for bird 1 an immature tern and for bird 2, a Common Eider fledgling.
