I am delighted to announce that we have a winner from our photo identification contest!
Jordan, start-up founder extraordinaire, correctly (albeit a little vaguely) identified the mystery object in the photo:
“It’s a bird! On the log! A Brown bird of some kind that I might now if I had ever read some kind of birding book!”
Yes, my friend, that is generally correct.
However, an honorable mention goes to James for being much more specific, but unfortunately, past the entry deadline:
“what was it? did anyone guess? did you post the answer somewhere?is it a female pheasant sitting on a log?i’m seriously obsessed with this picture now and i have to know…”
Based on what we saw, I think it was a female grouse (My dad has a funny story about being attacked by a grouse.), but it could very well be a young female pheasant.
Congratulations, you excellent bird-identifiers! Jordan, we will bring your prize when we arrive at your doorstep in a few weeks. James, you have the prize of knowing that you can spot well-camouflaged birds, a skill that will surely serve you well in life.
One thought on “Quoddy Contest Winner!”
Aww! Cool! I didn’t even see it! That bird is PRing at camo!
