It's on the NYS List, and since Flav is a coach he probably thought of that list first.

Oops again. It's not a Song Sparrow, but it is a bird which is on the NYS list but not the national list. Do you want another?

This one is on both lists, I promise. Naps and other New Yorkers, you can keep guessing on the first one if you want. Naps, the Song Sparrow has a streaked breast.

Good one. Distinctive, but still hard. Not on the NY list, though
