I can also suggest asking. If you know a birdwatcher they may know a lot, attend an Audubon walk. I ask my neighbors these sorts of things and they have been good about steering me in the right direction. You can find sources at local environmental group meetings.
Oh now William, you are funny. I need to give some more background on this quiz. Jim Dodge was a creative writing instructor of mine years ago. When this quiz was made he was living with a bunch of friends that did a good deal of field surveys for environmental consulting while living a fringe lifestyle almost off the grid. He and his friends were young and pretty hardcore at this point in their lives (I think that is why the scoring is so harsh).
The quiz can seem pretty hard if you don't spend a lot of time concerned with your environmental surroundings. I think it is a good jump off point to research these questions and learn a little more about where you live.
I didn't do so well. I got 10. For an outdoorsman, that's not really good. I spend an inordinate amount of time in the back country hiking and camping, and you would think I would know more about edible plants! I don't hunt, so even though I have a vague idea of the deer reproductive cycle, I'm not really sure what months things happen for them. I just know how much I love it when the babies are born in the Spring.
