Photos and answers are supplied by Tony Leukering, an ornithologist based in southeast Colorado, with strong interests in bird migration, distribution, and identification. He has worked for four different bird observatories from coast to coast and considers himself particularly adept at taking quiz photos (that is, bad pictures!). Leukering is the primary author of the In The Scope column in Colorado Birds and has served on the Colorado and New Jersey bird records committees. He is also interested in most everything else that flies, particularly moths and odonates.
Birding is a force for good in our society. Learning and sharing about birds translates into concern for birds and the environment, and the American Birding Association provides resources and community for all people interested in birds!
