US Version

For example, the white bird head by J tells you that their strip goes before (i.e., to the left of) the strip with D.

UK Version

For example, the head of the white bird near J connects to the bird's neck, which means this strip comes before (i.e. to the left of) the strip with D on it.

US Version

A's face appears in the strip with D. In other words, the strip with A goes behind the strip with D.

Where is the head of the white bird by person I?

UK Version

A's face appears above D. In other words, the strip with A on it comes after the strip with D.

What about the head of the white bird by person I?

US Version

The head of the white bird in Hint Three is missing from the photo.

From left to right, the strips follow this order: the strip with H, the strip with F, the strip with J, the strip with D, and the strip with A.

Now find the person in third place.
