Sunday Quiz – The Eyes Have It! The Answers

Dear Readers, it’s fair to say that my not making this quiz  multiple-choice was pretty wicked, so let’s not do that again :-). Congratulations to FEARN for getting 9 out of 15, while Rayna got 8 and Rosalind got six. As FEARN said, ‘this one is impossible’, so well done to everyone for having a bash.

2) Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos)

3) Grey Squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis)

4) Grey heron (Ardea cinerea)

5) Tufted duck (Aythya fuligula)

6) Wood mouse (Apodemus sylvaticus)

7) Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes)

8) Blackbird (Turdus merula)

9) Jackdaw (Corvus monedula)

10) Common frog (Rana temporaria)

11) Azure damselfly (though I’ll happily accept damselfly) (Coenagrion puella)

12) Robin (Erithacus rubecula)

13) Collared dove (Streptopelia decaocto)

14) Rose-ringed/ring-necked parakeet (Psittacula krameri)

    Thanks for this accolade. I am really peeved about my confusion of the tufted duck and coot (both are temporary resident on our local pond). And I’d still swear that that wren looks like a greyhound!!!

    Well, I very much enjoyed doing this quiz, even if a little belatedly. I got the Fox, Mallard, Heron, Blackbird, Jackdaw, Frog and Damselfly – so only 7. I should have known it was a parakeet and not a parrot (since many of the others had appeared in previous posts!) And I had eagle instead of sparrowhawk. So near and yet, so far… 😊
