Dead Bird Quiz: north to south

7 02 2012

Time for a dead bird quiz, everyone! Bird A was found by John Galluzzo on his beach on the south shore of Massachusetts last month. Wing chord was a mere 17cm.

Bird B was found by Becky Bartel in North Carolina last month. Wing chord on this one was 22cm.

What do you think, Seanetters and friends? Try your hand at an i.d. and you’ll hear from me on it on Thursday. Good luck!

Bird A: Headless specimen found by John Galluzzo in Scituate, MA.

Bird B: found by Becky Bartel in North Carolina last month.
