About This Quiz

Hey! Who are you calling chicken?

When birds are brought up in conversation, usually the first thing that comes to mind is an animal that soars through the air with its wings. Yes, while many birds do fly, there are also others that swim in coldest oceans and others that are unmatched sprinters. In fact, birds are actually one of the closest living relatives to some dinosaurs! For example, did you know that the chicken is closely related to the giant T-rex? Birds are diverse and interesting, but the sad truth is that a lot of them are in danger of being wiped out for good; in fact many bird species have disappeared already!

There are about ten thousand species of birds worldwide, and currently over 5 percent of them are endangered; with more and more becoming at risk each year! That's way too much to fit on just one quiz, but we've tried our best to mention some of the most iconic and endangered birds from all corners of the world. So, how knowledgeable are you about what's going on in the world and in nature? Let's test your fowl knowledge and see if you can perfect this avian quiz!
