  • David: I’ve quite enjoyed the on-line quizzes that you post, and for a few years now I have steered my natural history students to them to test and refine their skills. You now have so many of them, I’m wondering if you’ve ever developed an index to them so that people looking to test themselves on a specific topic, like head plumage, could easily navigate to the relevant quizzes.

    Thanks!
