St. George Photo Quiz

posted by Jeff Bilsky at
on Friday, March 8, 2013 

Tim Avery and I went down to St. George a couple of weeks ago. He posted a great recap. Kenny Frisch also posted his own adventures from the week before. So now it's my turn. I'm going to do it a little differently. I've been going through my photos and realized how many terrible angle, "uncooperative" bird shots I was able to compile. So as my recap, here is a photo quiz. This should be a fun one I hope. Please post your answers in the comments. Good luck and good birding!

I would answer, but since I was there I have an unfair advantage on several of the tougher ones.
