Winter Wonderland 6


Dear Readers, I am hiding the comments which already have the answers – I have seen them and will mark them, so don’t worry, and well done for being so speedy! I just want to give other people a chance to have a bash uninfluenced 😎.

Dear Readers, well, we’re at the end of the quiz, and today I think we’ve done enough looking at things, so I’d like us to do some listening. Can you match the calls below to the photo of the animal? I have pushed the definition of ‘Christmas’ to include some generally wintery animals, so I hope you’ll forgive me!

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

The links for all the previous parts of the quiz are below. Feel free to do as much or as little as you like! And have the best possible Christmas that you can, I am sending enormous virtual hugs to all of you as we navigate this most peculiar of festive seasons together.

Winter Wonderland 1 – Christmas Trees

Winter Wonderland 2 – Christmas Plant Folklore

Winter Wonderland 3 – Animal Tracks

Winter Wonderland 4 – Rainbow Birds

Winter Wonderland 5 – Christmas Fruit and Vegetables

Christmas ‘Carols’

Ok, here we go! Listen to the sounds below, and see if you can match them to the photo of the animal. So, if you think that a polar bear is responsible for sound ‘A’, your answer is 24) A)

Good luck! I think this is an advanced-level quiz πŸ™‚ so mega congratulations to anyone who can figure it out!








Question 24 – Polar Bear

Question 25 – Rock Ptarmigan

Question 26 – Snow Bunting

    We have finally managed to get our quiz replies (just about) in in time ;0 We did do the previous quiz after the results were published, but before looking, and got 4, which might not sound much, but was double our previous effort of two!
    So to the Christmas quiz, which was great fun, especially the bird names …. Did you mean to give us a Christmas present on Christmas Eve, or are we missing something?
