Quiz 7: more on bird weights, with a twist

In this quiz your challenge is to compare the weight of the birds with common household items. There is variation in the weight of the birds, and variation in the weight of some of the other items, so this is meant to be a comparison of the average weight for each. We could quibble over how much the average banana or deck of cards weighs, but we won’t (unless you think one of my numbers is really far off).
