Capture The Camp Flag Clues!
Surf BirdChannel.com to find the answers to the following questions. You’ll use these answers to crack a code for your final clue. How do you crack the code? Write the word, and beneath it begin numbering each letter. If a duplicate letter appears, use the first number you assigned to it. Here’s an example if the answer word was macaw:
M A C A W
(1) (2) (3)(2)(4)
The second A in macaw was given the number 2 because it was a duplicate letter and re-used the first number assigned to that letter. Use parenthesis to avoid confusion in numbering when you reach double digits. With each new answer, continue the numbering system. Do not start numbering again from 1. So if the answer to the second question was the word avian, you would write:
A V I A N
(2)(5)(6)(2)(7) (the A is repeated from the first answer).
That’s all there is to it. Now, here are your clues. Each answer is one word. Good luck!
1. Which bird species (excluding parrots) did visitors to BirdChannel in March 2008 vote as the bird species they wanted to learn more about?
2. What word comes between the words “dimorphic” and “lore” in the Bird Lingo word search?
3. What is the No. 3 bird listed in the Kids Bird Club article about the best pet birds for kids?
4. What is the seven-letter word that’s listed as the seventh behavior under the letter “S” in the Bird Behaviors index? You reach this by clicking on Bird Species, then clicking into the specific page for one bird and clicking on the box labeled “What Is My Bird Doing?”
5. What is the second word in the title of this top bird food recipe: “Kathy’s _______ Potato Smash”
6. Now, plug in your code to decipher your final clue to find the flag.
