Consider accepting African Grey as a typein -- I think it's the full name, or at least a widely used alternative. I tried it 3-4 times before giving up.

Yeah, I missed it because of that. African grey is apparently just another name for it though rather than the official name.

"The grey parrot (Psittacus erithacus), also known as the Congo grey parrot, Congo African grey parrot or African grey parrot" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grey_parrot

Goldfinches look nothing like that in the UK! And the deer looks like an identical twin of a red deer...

Yeah, British/European Goldfinches do look pretty different. That one got me.

I had to look that one up. Turns out the American goldfinch and the European goldfinch are from the same subfamily, but different genera.

I only got those because I am interested in nature and I often see American wildlife on my internet travels. Otherwise those would have stumped me as those aren't as well known outside of America. I first tried Golden Oriole, then Baltimore Golden Oriole for the Finch but when that failed I remembered the right answer. I'm just glad they accepted Grey Heron given the two species are practically identical.

Well to be fair that was the same logic I used to get to "green iguana" and that worked.

Red deer seems to be more appropriate than white-tailed deer, but that's just a preference.

If the red deer was only native to North America, it probably would have gotten a spot on the quiz.

I've never seen an animal as funny as the Blue Footed Booby. Well named for sure. I couldn't answer the rest for laughing

I couldn't remember its name and tried Blue Finned Booby. At least this gave me the tuna answer!

I agree with previous comment about the goldfinch-a UK goldfinch looks nothing like that...and I kept typing in red deer.

question, why does gray heron work for great blue heron?

Because they're closely-related species that look very similar, especially in this picture.

Goldfinch, state bird of NJ. (contrary to popular perception, not the middle finger) In 50+ years in NJ, I've see as many pterodactyls as goldfinches.

Maybe you should entitle it 'American Goldfinch' as it looks nothing like what we in Europe call a Goldfinch.

To make it more confusing the Dutch word/version (the literal translation goudvink) apparently is yet ánother bird, the eurasian bullfinch in English.

So we have putter, goudsijs, and goudvink. Which are respectively European goldfinch, American goldfinch and bullfinch.

I did not know any of this before hand (I had heard of all the names though, but was not aware of a difference between european and american, I had just heard plain goldfinch before (or remembered))

I atleast did recognize it as a finch, I tried yellow finch.

Funny thing is I do know that birds can look radically different between the old and new world and still bare the same name, I have encountered this with blackbird, and robin. Wildly different looking if I rememeber. So as a random guess I tried blackbird (when yellow finch did nothing)haha

That is not a gold finch
