Welcome to Our one chance to fly, an online riddle.
This set of riddles and puzzles is a part of Avian Electronics, a project focused on creating electronically synthesized birdsong. Electronic birds will guide you on your quest.
There are 20 riddles. The first 100 people to complete them all get a free digital copy of the Avian Electronics album. Also, I will donate 5€ to WWF for each person to finish.
In each riddle the objective is to find a password. All passwords are english words, all lower-case letters, no numbers or special characters. It should always be clear to you when you've found the password, no guessing required. If you find something else - eg. a set of numbers, a picture, a sound file, coordinates, whatever - then find a way to transform it into a word in some way. Search the internet if you need to, ask a friend or a stranger for help if the riddle seems to require a skill you don't have. Once you have the password you may advance to the next riddle.

The password is the name of a bird species, Anas platyrhynchos.
