Nothing more festive than a…Dead bird quiz

22 12 2009

First, an item basically unrelated to the dead bird quiz: Dennis Minsky, volunteer extaordinaire out on Cape Cod, always enjoys dead birds for their own sake, but the bird he found most recently came with an extra gift. While walking the beach with assistant/puppy Dory, the two came upon what appeared to be a White-winged Scoter carcass. On the leg was a band reading, “REWARD $100.” Dennis followed up on this bizarre message and discovered that it’s for real! Now Dennis is flush with cash, has a new puppy, and a beach that turns up endless dead birds. Sounds like a happy man.

Now, for the dead bird quiz.

Bird A found by Mary Myers on Cape Cod last month

Bird B, found by Frank Kenny in NJ back in February.
