Mystery Gulls and Tern
Mystery Gulls and Tern

I came across this image this morning while working up my post Bird images from warmer days and all at 300mm or less and thought it might make a great image for a Bird ID Quiz.

There are three different species of birds in this image, the image was created at Fort De Soto County Park’s north beach in Florida on April 24, 2009. I have supplied three answers to the quiz and only one of them is correct. Get out your bird guide books, check out the images/drawings and geographic ranges and see if you can figure out which answer is correct!

Juvenile Western Gull, 1st winter Franklin’s Gull, Elegant Tern: 1 vote (3%)

Juvenile Herring Gull, 1st winter Laughing Gull and Royal Tern: 25 votes (83%)

Juvenile Western Gull, 1st winter Franklin’s Gull, Royal Tern: 3 votes (10%)

Other answer: Clueless LOL = 1 Vote (3%)

I’ll post the answer on Monday morning! (See the correct answer here)
