Typed "seagull" several times to make sure I wasn't crazy. Should that be accepted?

No - it shouldn't be accepted. Gull, yes - seagull, no. No such thing as a 'seagull'. Common Gulls, Herring Gulls, Laughing Gulls, Kelp Gulls - whatever species you have where you live - are all 'gulls' but 'seagull' no, no, no!! :-)

I've seen more seagulls in my life than 99.9% of people. I'll stick to it.

I only got that one because it was red and green, famous, and I've been to Costa Rica.

I know the image source says that the depicted bird is a Common gull and not a Mew gull, but some authorities consider Mew gull to be the name for the whole species (rather than just the American subspecies), so I think that should be accepted as a type-in. Also, the depicted species of Quetzal is a Golden-headed Quetzal. Thought you'd like to know as you included the species name in all other cases.

Agree! Common Gull in the UK, Mew Gull elsewhere - either should be accepted, just not 'seagull'!

The quetzal is a Golden-headed. The condor is California, not Andean. PLEASE fix.

And with a bit more orange the emperor penguin would be a king penguin.

some too easy others too detailed. If it needs to be one type of penguin, shouldn;t all names be so detailed ? or otherwise, of course (if all need to be so detailed I would have had zero)

As a Guatemalan, I'm glad to see a Quetzal in here, even if it's not a Resplendent.

Seriously, I said Canadian Geese and it wasn't acceptable to Canada goose??? There are multiple which means it really ought to be "geese!"

The perennial question of whether people cheat gathers steam by anything above a tiny percent getting quetzal.
