What is Street Creatures?  This is the game I run on Twitter every Friday. I’ve
collected all the past quizzes here in one place so you can either relive them, or play
them for the first time.

How does it work?  Provided are four, seemingly unrelated clues, that are all
connected by a wild organism that can be found in a city. Look at the four clues,
do some research, and when you think you’ve figured it out, click on ‘Answer’
to reveal what connects the clues, and how they are connected.

Follow me on Twitter to play #StreetCreatures live every Friday at 9am PST.

Answer (Don't click until you've solved it)

Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna)

René Primevère Lesson:

French naturalist Lesson named the Anna’s Hummingbird Calpyte anna after the Duchess of Rivoli, Anna Masséna because of her beauty. A little ironic since it’s the male bird that is so splendid.


Male hummingbirds in the genus Calypte have a helmet of iridescent feathers and gorget. It’s thought that ‘Calypte’ derives from a Greek word meaning helmet, or head covering.


This tree was introduced to California providing hummingbirds a new source of nectar. As the tree spread, so did the Anna’s range.

Tail chirp:

The male Anna’s does a dive display, flying high and then diving down very fast. At the bottom of his dive he emits a loud chirp that actually is made by his tail feathers.
