All the answers begin with Q

I knew 8 of the 10 and I should have know the bonus one, but couldn't think of it off the top of my head.
That was fun.
Do another one...quickly! HA!

Fun quiz, I think I got 7 but not the bonus. Your header is so beautiful--spring is wonderful.

That was entertaining! I was a bit unsure of the first one--made a good guess, then the other answers came quickly to mind. The bonus question with the exotic bird was the real puzzler. A good word for Scrabble players to remember.

Good quiz, you got me with the last one, all I could think of was the Aztec god, Quetzaalcoaitl. I think the names must be derivative, because Quetzaalcoaitl was known as a feathered serpant.

Wow, thanks for listing the answers, or I would have been on the computer all day to find quetzal! This was fun. We had a quince bush at my childhood home, and it had the prettiest blossoms. Thanks so much for this! Amy

Wonderful quiz, Chris, and great fun. I missed numbers 8 (should have had it), 10 and the bonus. I have a "Q" post waiting in drafts. Way too late now, but may publish it without linking up. I am thinking of your health. Drop me a note, if you can, before you go into the hospital. I will be thinking of you for sure!
