You do not want guineas, trust me. They may eat ticks, but also your eyes. The babies are super cute though.

I had no idea #7 was THAT big. The wingspan and the bird itself. I mean with a Condor (which I thought the answer would be) you kind of see how big it is but that one doesn't so it really surprised me. Then again I've only ever seen an Andean Condor "live" in a bird park. No #7 or variation of the species.

well technically not as big as an ostrich, but i bet it could eat one. These things used to prey on moa. A very scary bird indeed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haast%27s_eagle

Fun fact: largest known bird species was the Elephant Bird, weighing up to five times heavier than an Ostrich, and the tallest was the female Moa, the only bird known to have no wings!

There are actually three collective nouns for geese: a gaggle when they are on the ground, a skein when there is a group of them in flight, and a wedge when they are in flight in a V formation.

A few notes about this quiz (boy does that sound pretentious...): 1. I feel like the extra S shouldn't be needed in Albatross (as with so many other answers on JetPunk); 2. Giving the starting letter for Raptor makes it kind of too obvious, doesn't it? (same with Osprey, although I would have probably not gotten it without the O); 3. If you're gonna ask to be specific about the USA bird, why not be specific for the pigeon as well?; 4. Crows are creepy.
