Few more days and few more quizzes left before the main event Endemic Bird Day 2019
Before we move to quiz 3, let us have a look at the answer to quiz 2 first.
Answer to Bird Quiz 2
The arboreal bird is none other than the cryptic Indian Spotted Creeper! Its plumage consists of complex amalgamation of brown, black, white bars and spots which helps in camouflage on fissured tree trunks. With its stout body, short-squarish tail and long- curved beak, it is often seen inching vertically up the tree trunks foraging for invertebrates.
We would like to thank Dr. Dharmendra Khandal from Tiger Watch, Ranthambhore, for letting us share the habitat photographs in the previous post
