Dead Bird Quiz

12 07 2011

It’s difficult to think straight on the second day in a row of grotesque heat and humidity. I can muster just enough mental acuity to post this dead bird quiz. Here’s hoping that by the time I have to provide some answers, my brain will be less addled by weather.

Bird A, found by Helen Rasmussen in Portland, Maine on July 2nd. Culmen length is 50mm, wing chord 33cm, tarsus 54mm. Thoughts?

 

Bird B was found back in March by Maggie Komosinski in Rhode Island. This blast from the past is likely a fond wish for the weather of late winter as I sit here sweltering.
