Bird Trait Challenge!

Postby SandyLee » Thu Feb 11, 2010 1:48 pm

Credit goes to Obnates for this one! :D

The Bird Trait Challenge!

Rules:
- Post a bird (post #1)
- Follow with a "trait" ... i.e., color, field mark(s), habitat, behavior, range, voice, or other identifying trait.

Next Post:
Repeat "Trait", add a Bird that exhibits that trait, post new "trait"....and so on.

Example:
Post 1 - Tufted Titmouse, Crest
Post 2 - Crest, Northern Cardinal, Red
Post 3 - Red, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Black

Yes, traits are likely to be repeated, but that's ok....there are lots of different birds to choose from!

...I think I hear Obnates volunteering to mediate and answer questions! :mrgreen:

First Bird/Trait:

Common Loon, Diver

Yes, I can help mediate/answer questions that people might have, but hopefully after a couple of posts this will go very smoothly.
