I wonder why places like Ukraine and Romania are not higher. I'd guess they would have more species than the Netherlands and Ireland. It's all the western countries, so I wonder if it's to do with the system of conservation, bird counting and reporting in those countries.

I think it's not conservation, Eastern European countries such as Romania and Ukraine have relatively large areas not disturbed by human activity. I would rather say that in the countries that made it to this quiz birdwatching and counting has far more tradition, and so the numbers are higher.

I wondered along similar lines, whether more bids are reported in the countries pictured. Perhaps these figures only help us somewhat understand the differences in bids between the countries that score, as opposed to those ommited.

Okay, I updated the quiz. I used data from ebird.org, in which bird sightings are submitted by users. Because places like Ukraine and Romania have less birders, the bird count is less on ebird. Thanks for the feedback!
