Last Week's Quiz:
How to Identify:This quiz proved to be pretty challenging. A lot of this bird is obstructed by vegetation but there are some good field marks that we can see. We can see that this bird has a thin short bill, a huge white wing patch, some reddish orange color on the belly, and some white on the tail. If you look really closely at the head, you can also see a very narrow lower eye-arc. The thin bill and the location and size of the wing patch should help us eliminate a lot of species including both towhees and Baltimore and Orchard Oriole. The only bird that fits the rest of this description is a Painted Redstart.
