Geocache Description:

For the bird lovers out there.

***Cache is NOT at above coordinates***

I love birds and so I thought I would create a puzzle cache. To solve all you have to do is identifying some common birds.

Each bird is given a letter in front of it A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H
A Photobucket
B Photobucket
C Photobucket
D Photobucket
E Photobucket
F Photobucket
G Photobucket
H Photobucket

Correctly Identify each bird picture with it's correct name then use the numbers to solve for cache coordinates.

Oh and I have added a few extra names to make it a bit of a challenge.

American (Goldfinch) = 8

American (Robin) = 3

Barn Swallow = 7

Black Capped (Chickadee) = 5

Black-billed (Magpie) = 8

Blue Jay = 4

Brown Thrasher = 4

Brown-headed (Cowbird) = 8

Dark-eyed (Junco) = 5

Eastern (Bluebird) = 3

Great Horned (Owl) = 8

House (Sparrow) = 7

House (Wren) = 9

Indigo Bunting = 0

Northern (Cardinal) = 0

Red winged Blackbird = 0

Red-headed (Woodpecker) = 0

White Breasted (Nuthatch) = 9

If you need help you can always refer to the Book called "Birds of Minnesota Field Gudie" by Stan Tekiela ISBN 1-59193-037-5

Now use the following coordinates Change the letters with the bird's number.
N 45 (A B.C D)5 W 093 (E F.G H)0

Good Luck and Happy Caching
