Not this one!

July 7 Quiz Bird: the Answer?

We had some very learned guesses to the July 7th Quiz Bird but unfortunately none were correct.

The lack of correct guesses may be due to my bad drawing (see below).

The correct answer is–Marbled Wood Quail! See, there are actually two birds feeding on the ground.

Stay tuned for our next (and real) Quiz Bird coming on Monday, July 23.
