Thanks!

Yeah, I'll post it. I'm pretty busy over the weekend and I want to add some things to it first, but I'll do it as soon as I can.

Double post, sorry.

Anyone from PA states – did you get the one about the person who studied bird behavior?

Edit:
I got my test back, so here were the bird calls (I got them all right):

1. American Bittern
2. Red-winged Blackbird
3. Canyon Wren
4. Red-tailed Hawk
5. Yellow-breasted Chat

Edit: Just looked up the bird behavior one, the answer was imprinting.

Agh, I got the first four bird calls right, but I didn't get the Yellow-breasted Chat. I know what it sounds like too.... ahhh I am so mad -___- Oh well.
Yeah, we got the question about the bird behavior. We guessed, though.
And since we didn't place, I'm impatient for the results to come out to see what place we actually did get...

Did C Division PA have different calls? Because I don't think we had a Yellow-breasted Chat.

Yeah, no, that was a Chat. I sounds like a mimid because it has a wide collection of sounds, but you can tell it apart because all (or most) of the calls are monosyllabic.
