Shorebird Identification: Silhouette Answers

It's time for the answers to the shorebird silhouette quiz!  You can click on the image to more easily see the answers.  Hopefully this quiz shows how important it is to note the shape of shorebirds while trying to identify them.  You can quickly go from 15 to 3 options just by ruling out species based on shape/size.  


So, on your next "shorebirding" outing try to start the identification process by noticing the different shapes of all the shorebirds.

How did you do?
