Are You A Bird-Brain?

20 cells are arranged in a 5x4 grid — 5 columns, 4 rows. The cells are occupied by 20

birds — 10 different birds, comprising a pair of each.

The cells are labelled as follows:

A  B  C  D  E

F  G  H  I  K

L  M N O  P

R  S  T U W

The ten birds in question are: albatross, bunting, cardinal, chickadee, finch, flamingo,

hawk, magpie, penguin, and swan.

A bird can only occupy a cell if the cell is labelled with a letter that is in the bird's

name. For example, a hawk can only be in cells H, A, W, or K.

Every cell contains exactly one bird.

Each pair of birds must be in either the same row or the same column as each other.

Using this information, where are the birds located?
