Bird quiz (VogelQuiz).


Description: Quiz for 1 or 2 players, consisting in guessing the name of birds based on their picture (120 images included in the .zip archive). There are several levels, including one with exotic birds (what a diversity of bizarre forms and beautiful colors!). The GUI is in German, but birds names are also available in English. For both languages, the first 2 levels allow to use more general names, such as "eagle" instead of "golden eagle". With Engliah names, for all levels, the bird names may be simplified by omitting words like "common", "European", "Western"... Beside the quiz, the program offers a slideshow feature, showing pictures of the birds being part of a given level at one of 4 time intervals, chosen by the user.
