BIOL 4142 Photo Quiz

Lab 1 Ornithology birds:

Anseriformes and Galliformes

First, you’ll see a photo showing just enough to allow you to clinch the ID. Then, you’ll see the full photo with the name and perhaps some ID tips on specimens (not field ID)

slide3

American Wigeon; Anatidae; Anseriformes

No other bird, much less other duck, has a whitish forehead with green on the face

slide5

Green-winged Teal;

Anatidae; Anseriformes

Green face patch on reddish-chestnut head unique. Warning = that white mark on the sides of the breast sometimes hard to see in study skins

slide7

Blue-winged Teal; Anatidae; Anseriformes

No other bird, much less other duck, has a whitish crescent on face; pale blue secondary coverts are a bonus

slide11

Canada Goose and Cackling Goose; Anatidae; Anseriformes

Check out the difference in bill shape: Cackling is disproportionately shorter, more triangular

slide13

Reddish head, white back, black breast

Canvasback; Anatidae; Anseriformes

slide15

You can barely see the line of black feathers down the back of the neck; note the plain light-brown face

Fulvous Whistling-Duck; Anatidae; Anseriformes

slide17

Brown head, with clean white breast and white extending up sides of neck

Northern Pintail; Anatidae; Anseriformes

slide21

Unmistakable; those wavy dark markings on the breast and belly are distinctive

Northern Bobwhite; Odontophoridae; Galliformes

slide23

Black-bellied Whistling-Duck; Anatidae; Anseriformes

No other duck has plain face and solid black belly

slide25

Greater White-fronted Goose;

Anatidae; Anseriformes

Either the irregular black markings on the breast and belly OR the white on the face is diagnostic (compare with Blue-winged Teal)

slide27

Green head, white neck ring, brown breast …

Mallard; Anatidae; Anseriformes

slide31

Reddish head, black breast, gray back – compare to Canvasback

Redhead; Anatidae; Anseriformes

slide33

White patch on head diagnostic, but compare to Bufflehead

Hooded Merganser; Anatidae; Anseriformes

slide35

Blackish head and breast with paler back (varies almost white to fairly dark grayish, usually mottled)

Lesser Scaup; Anatidae; Anseriformes

slide37

Shaggy reddish-brown head, narrow bill (which will show serrations clearly in the specimen)

Female Red-breasted Merganser; Anatidae; Anseriformes

slide39

Expanded bill tip diagnostic

Northern Shoveler; Anatidae; Anseriformes

slide41

Nothing else has those colors and patterns on the back or wings

Wild Turkey; Phasianidae; Galliformes

slide43

Vaguely like a Mallard, but skinny serrated bill, and much “messier” overall

Red-beasted Merganser; Anatidae; Anseriformes

slide45

Dark head AND black back – contrast with Lesser Scaup

Ring-necked Duck; Anatidae; Anseriformes

slide47

Dark crown with clean white face

Ruddy Duck; Anatidae; Anseriformes

slide49

What else could it be?

Wood Duck; Anatidae; Anseriformes

slide51

Check out the difference in bill shape: Ross’s is disproportionately shorter, more triangular

Snow Goose & Ross’s Goose; Anatidae; Anseriformes
