Dead Bird Quiz: What the woo-woo edition

16 08 2012

Here it is, the latest DBQ, dubbed the “What the woo-woo?” edition (that being my five year old’s favorite expression of surprise and bewilderment.) So help a Seanetter out friends; do you know what these are?

Bird A’s overall size can be judged generally by the ruler beside it. Bird B’s measurements are given as: Culmen 35.5mm; Wing chord 90 cm; Tarsus 57mm.

Bird A: Found in North Carolina by the Frazier team in June.

Bird B: Found in Massachusetts in June (on my birthday!) by Jenn Grota.

Cool finds!
Bird A is a Grey Catbird (Dumetella carolinensis), and I think Bird B is a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis)
Keep them coming please, I love mystery dead bird challenges.
