Today we introduce a new series of quizzes, which I’m calling Pop BirdQuizzes.

Why?  I’ve taken some photos lately that are ideal quiz subjects, but which I thought made an identification point that deserved a more extensive answer. So instead of simply incorporating the photo into one of the existing quizzes, I decided to experiment with a format where I provide the location and the time of year of the photo as clues, and then discuss the bird(s) more fully. Give it a try; start by clicking here or on the PopQuiz tab at the top of the page.
