Ducks, Grebes, and Geese ID Quiz ~ test your yourself on these beautiful birds here in Wisconsin!

Ducks, Grebes, and Geese ID Quiz ~ test your yourself on these beautiful birds that can be found sometime during the year here in Wisconsin! There are 50 images, see how well you do. Answers are below last photo at the bottom of the page. There is a chance you may see some color variation in ducks, grebes, or geese considering sex, age or time of year. There are books, FB groups, phone apps, classes to lean more. There are also presentations to help in learning bird ID, look for details at your local nature center. All photos were taken in Wisconsin except the Wood Ducks and the female Green-winged Teal images. Please let me know if you see an error, thank you. Special Note: I have complied a list of 50 images of ducks, grebes, and geese. I am missing a few of the images for various reasons, sorry. This quiz may not be as easy as the warbler or shorebird quiz! So don’t look for these in the quiz as they are missing: American Black Duck fm, Northern Pintail fm, Barrow’s Goldeneye fm, Common Mergansers.
