Bird Song Matching Quiz

A mnemonic device is something used to aid memory or learning. Sometimes birders 'translate' bird songs into mnemonics to help them remember which bird is singing a particular song. We've made a fun quiz showing ten of our Birdorable birds and the common mnemonics birdwatchers sometimes use to remember their songs. You can download and/or print the Bird Song Matching Quiz PDF. Try to match each bird with the popular mnemonic of its song. To get you started, we've matched the Common Yellowthroat with its song: "Witchety! Witchety! Witchety!" If you get stuck, you can check the meet pages of our birds to see who says what. Click on the picture to view the PDF.
