Wordle-esque Bird Game

Look what I found: https://redactlegame.com/birdie

Description is in the title. You start with a zoomed in pic of a bird and make a guess. The photo zooms out after each wrong guess. You have 6 tries total.

I’m pretty bad at birds so its a challenge. It looks like only North American birds are in the list. Have fun.

interesting. this game doesn’t strike me as particularly Wordle-like (because the set of possible choices isn’t really narrowed down by the previous user interactions).

to make it more conceptually Wordle-like, i think i would allow the user to select how the photos is revealed. for example, you could start with a photo that has 90% blur applied. then during each turn, the user would be able to either reduce the blur of the entire photo by some small increment like 15% over the entire photo, or choose something like 25% of the photo to unblur by a larger increment like 30%.

maybe this could be combined with some the tree-narrowing gameplay of metazoa to make it possible to play that kind of came with more esoteric taxa (where having a photo to look at would be helpful).

I’m pretty bad at birds, too, but it is interesting.

Tail feathers were enough for me today

Didn’t notice that my second guess was half correct, so I wasted a couple turns before getting today’s bird. Good ID practice.

Anyone still playing?

I keep on losing :sweat_smile:

Super funky lil’ game! But why can’t there be a European one. I know those ones so much better. :sob:


Yes, just my thoughts right now… :)
