Fall Hummingbird Migration

During fall migration hundreds of hummingbirds flock to feeders. Here in South Louisiana, I often have to fill the feeders every other day. This is one of the few times that large numbers come together like this as they fatten up to make the long journey to their wintering grounds.

      Was fun to do. I got 89% though I suspect half of those should be knocked off because I took the test twice (totally by accident) I wasn't logged in the first time and I was too much an idiot to realize there were pictures that helped tremendously. :D

      You caught me on the pine warbler, I was confident that it was a female goldfinch. I really liked the use of pictures for a quiz. Might as well enjoy seeing nature while answering questions. Great work!

      Good quiz! I did fairly well (7 out of 9). The pine warbler in the photo looks enough like the fall/winter plumage of the goldfinch, so I got that one wrong. The other one, I should've been able to figure out (scientific name of sunflower).
