RMBO Audio Quiz #5 - Answer

This week's quiz wasn't too difficult and everyone that answered was correct. This audio clip of a Northern Pygmy-Owl and European Starling was recorded in the Paonia town park (Delta County, Colorado) by Jason Beason. A pair of Northern Pygmy-Owls attempted to breed unsuccessfully in April of 2008. The pair was seen copulating and the female was seen exiting from a cavity in a large silver maple in the park. Of course, there are a large number of starlings breeding here. When I returned one evening and saw a starling poking its head out of the same cavity the female Pygmy-Owl had been using, I lost hope that the owls would actually breed.

The following people answered correctly on this quiz (* = 1/2 bonus point):
