I got 8/10--thanks for the hint about the raven, benj1.

I object to "...flickers, and woodpeckers eat insects not seeds" They grouped them with robins (which I agree are not likely to show up at a seed feeder.

I have seen robins in feeders before...

And, hummingbirds eat a ton of insects, especially when feeding young!

I can see saying that robins are less likely to be seen at feeders containing seeds....but I would not say that woodpeckers are unlikely to be seen.

I agree hummingbirds eat insects, but they are not the primary food of the adults, I think. So, that one didn't bother me so much.

I only got a 6/10!

I also object to a Raven being a song bird.

I get woodpeckers at my seed feeders, so I don't have a problem with that. Once I got a flicker when snow hung out for four days, so I kind of objected to getting that one wrong, too. I don't get robins at my feeders, ever.

It was still fun, wasn't it, even if you end up swearing at it and objecting to their answers?

That is what I mean...I've had wood peckers and flickers. I think the quiz stated that woodpeckers, flickers, and robins eat insects so they don't go to feeders!
