Dead Bird Quiz, advanced edition

13 07 2010

Seanetters are a savvy bunch when it comes to dead birds. Difficult to stump, and quick to respond, your SEANET blogger felt they deserved a special challenge for this dead bird quiz. Bird B, found by new Seanetter, Kate Wall, in Maine is a particularly tough one. Bird A, found by long-time Seanetter Rey Larsen is a relatively unusual find on a SEANET beach, though the id is made considerably easier given the presence of a head.

Bring on the guesses/confident assertions as usual. Post them as comments and the answer will be posted later this week. Good luck Seanetters!

Bird A: Found in Rhode Island in April, 2010.

Bird B: Found in Scarborough, Maine in April 2010.
