New Photo Quiz: September/October 2013 Birding

Scroll down to the bottom of the post, past the quiz images, to where it says “Spoiler Alert.”

Alright, back now to the issue at hand. The new photo quiz is a bit of a departure from standard operating procedure. This time, we’re giving you two photos of the same bird. Our quiz bird was photographed this past summer in Sax-Zim Bog, St. Louis County, Minnesota.
