Can You Identify These Winter Visitors? Test Your ID Skills!
Winter Visitor #1
Let’s start with an easy one. Although some varieties of this backyard bird are year-round residents in some parts of North America, it can be found from coast to coast (excluding South Florida) in the winter. Hint: It is colloquially called “snowbird.”
Identifying birds is at the very heart of bird watching. Each bird encountered is like a little puzzle or mystery to solve, because, while birds of a single species all share a certain set of physical traits, no two individual birds, like no two individual humans, are exactly alike.
