Rainbow Lorikeet (Title Photo)

Dear Readers, enough of all this snowy bleakness! In winter there’s often rain and sometimes the sun blasts through and creates a rainbow for us. So today your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to name the birds shown below, one for each colour of the rainbow. And to be extra mean, I am not going to give you any names, though I hope they won’t too difficult. They come from all over the world, so fingers crossed there will be something here for everyone.

As you will remember, I started the quiz  on the 19th December and will finish on Christmas Eve (24th December) – answers for the whole quiz will need to be with me by 5 p.m. UK time on Monday 28th December.

If you missed yesterday’s quiz, just search the blog for ‘Winter Wonderland’ and this should bring you up all parts of the quiz. I am also going to include the links for the whole quiz on Christmas Eve, just in case you are bored after eating mince pies and watching It’s A Wonderful Life for the umpteenth time.
