VIRTUAL BIRDING 15 – This gallery consist of 15 birds. Four are “gimme’s” consisting of commons in several states. Three sparrow photos are the same bird. The rest of the 15 may be tough if you are not familiar with Montana birds, which we are not. Feel free to post your answers below. 3, 4, 5, and 9 have us stumped as to particular species. All of these photos were taken in or near Shelby, Montana (Far northern part in Toole County) within the past 72 hours.
added: found two more – 16. and 17 after posting.
