Penny’s Hot Birding Quiz!

Sarah and I were asked to do the Christmas Quiz at work this year and naturally I had to include some birdy questions for the team – well they didn't get much choice really!

I'm sure you all know the answers, but it was very amusing testing my colleagues out, they didn't do too badly though, considering none of them are birders. Only one person knew the emblem of the RSPB and it took alot of guessing to get No. 11 question right. The only person to get No. 5 correct was Anne-Marie who is Scottish, so expected her to know this! I did 15 nursing questions aswell, but havn't bothered to add them here.

Sarah and I dished chocolates out for the winners of the three teams, chocolates for the runners-up and I threw in a couple of bonus questions to win my two RSPB complimentary reserve tickets – which Andrea and Sara won. You never know, it might encourage some of them to take up birding!

  1. What bird is the emblem of the RSPB?
  2. In the Christmas song ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ what bird sat in a pear tree?
