A little quiz that's been going round work last week - name the birds from the not so cryptic clues.


1) Sheryl or Russell
2) A big red rug
3) Glorious 12th
4) Chocolate biscuit
5) Cider bird
6) Edith Piaf?
7) Noah's messenger
8) Twice shy
9) Heavens - what a frolic
10) One doesn't make a summer
11) Lavatory humour
12) Cat alarm
13) Thief of the ring
14) Pebble talk
15) Three wheeler


Honestly, I had nothing to do with these. Don't look at me like that.

Agree on Crow and Dove, and really should have seen Robin. Doh!

Fairly sure that 11 is Pee-wit.

So about that airspeed velocity...

Swallow, definitely. But cider bird has to be Woodpecker (I grew up next to the bloody brewery that makes it for one :P).

Crow, yup.
Glorious 12th I always associated with Grouse for some reason.
Penguin, woot!
Cider bird = Woodpecker. But Strongbow is made by the same people to be fair. ;)
Edith Piaf was known as the Little Sparrow apparently.
Dove and Bittern, yup. And I second that groan.
