Solution by Tony Leukering
Excellent! No one stumbled over the hyphenation/non-hyphenation problem, the primary reason that I used this picture in the quiz. Two respondents figured out that reason and provided a bit of humor in their responses.
Peter Wilkinson: Why can't you just call it French Heron, and then we wouldn't have to worry about hyphenation and spelling and all that?!
Joshua Little: To dash or not to dash? Not to dash.
This week's quiz bird is a heron and the blue wings, brownish back, and white belly fooled no one into mis-stepping on the ID, at least among the respondents. I took this picture of a Tricolored Heron on 27 January 2010 at the Viera wetlands, Brevard Co., FL.
Incorrect species provided as answers:
none -- excellent!
