Whimbrel--same individual as id quiz photo This is a study skin in Carla Dove's (yes those are her hands!) lab at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum. Instead of showing a random photo of a living Whimbrel for the answer photo, I thought I would stick with the panned out shot. It's always interesting to see birds and ornithology in different contexts. Photo by Jordan Rutter
