Israeli named 'Bird Brain of Britain'

An Israeli ornithologist has recently been crowned the "Bird Brain of Britain." At the 2016 Birdfair exhibition in Egleton, England, over the weekend, Yoav Perlman earned the coveted title in a bird-watching trivia competition.
Perlman, a senior ornithologist for the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel, chose to focus on the theme "Rare Birds in Israel from 1985-present."
Answering questions on both his specific topic and global historical ornithology, Perlman had only one mistake, according to SPNI. He erred when asked what bird was used in a painting of King Tutankhamun, answering "bird of prey" rather than ibis.
Perlman received a £2000 prize for his win, which will be donated to bird conservation projects, SPNI said.
