The correct answer is listed below. Add one point for each one you got right.

1.  d – feather picking. Feather picking is not a sign of heat stroke. Besides the three signs above, weaknesses, a dazed expression and dry skin also indicate possible heatstroke.

2.  b – Mist your bird with cool water. One immediate step to take if you suspect your bird has heat stroke is to mist your bird with cool – but not frigid – water. Also, ensure your bird is located in a cool, well-ventilated area.

3. c – Convulsions. Birds with heat stress do not have convulsions, nor do they go unconscious. Heat-stressed birds might hold their wings out and pant.

4. d – Both a and c. Birds that spend time outdoors should be provided with shade, not direct sunlight, clean drinking water and protection from predators.

5. d – Both b and c. Make sure to both keep the bird calm and immediately take it to a veterinarian if you suspect it has heatstroke.

I'm relieved to see that I got a perfect score -- I didn't know I knew so much about heat stroke! I hope I never need to know this information, however...
