Answers: Quiz 11 - Who Am I?

Sorry about the delay in the answers, its been a busy month and I forgot!

Photo #1
Starting left to right: Black-necked Stilt, Northern Shoveler (male), Cinnamon Teal (male), Blue-winged Teal (male and female). In the background male Northern Shoveler preening, foreground male Northern Shoveler, two more male northern Shoveler, two Blue-winged Teal, female preening, American Coot preening, Black-necked Stilt, and finally a few Least Grebes! Most of the birds were a straight forward to identify, but the Least Grebes were a challenge. I thought I would stump everyone but most of you identified them correctly. Well done!

Photo #2
This image was a little more challenging since the ducks were feeding. If you had a lot of field experience you would note the legs/feet, colour of the flanks, length of tail and overall shape: Fulvous Whistling Ducks. It was a toughie!

Good birding,
