Time to test your powers of perception with a little blog quiz.
First Question: What is this post likely to be about?
Second Question: At what location were the images for this post taken?
Tick tick tick tick tick tick.. okay, pencils down. If you answered the first question with “a bird” you get 1 point. If your answer referenced a bird but included a profanity (as in another damn bird or probably stupid ass bird), then you have earned 5 points. Any answers that refer to quickly inflicting harm to author for subjecting them to another winged post results in a negative 2 points. If you failed to write your answer down because you lost your pencil while jumping in joy that there was a new post deserves 20 points for your sheer enthusiasm. Now on to question two. Answers referring to the Chain O’ Lakes State park will be met with a hardy +4, since you are obviously a loyal (and thus beloved) reader. References to the Circus Museum in Baraboo Wisconsin receive a negative 100 points for being a smartass but anything referring to the fact it doesn’t matter because corrupt politicians are trying to pull one over on the American people get a +12 for not being a sheeple.
… and the answer is – it is indeed a post about a bird and yes, another post from the Chain O’ Lakes State Park. I warned you it was going to be a feather laden month. Introducing the latest addition to the Birding Life List.
Oh, from a scoring perspective, any positive total is a win in my book! Any negative number should be met with scorn especially anything above a negative 50 (leave now Clown enthusiast!!). The bird or more descriptive, the duck you see here is a Gadwall. Once again, this ended up being a surprise in the digital darkroom. Ron and I were birding at the Chain, which translates to shooting absolutely anything with feathers.
Hit the jump to find out what this new duck is!
