Tweet Retreat: Bird Songs and Calls

This quiz is a mixed bag: if you are an avid birder, the common names of these birds will chirp in your mind. If not, you can probably sleuth your way through a good number of these phonetic and mnemonic devices with your quiz-savvy skillz.
Mnemonic devices (and even phonetic) can vary. Some birds have multiple calls. The songs in this quiz were collected from Stanford.edu, Audubon.org, and various other birding organizations.
Typing in the common name for a bird (hummingbirds, for example, instead of Ruby-Throated Hummingbird) will work.
