Here’s the answer to the latest birding quiz. Thanks for playing along.

The answer is a Pied-billed Grebe. That was the answer that received the most votes, so good job to all my readers!

This one was a bit tricky because one of the most telling field marks of the Pied-Billed Grebe is the dark ring around its bill. In this photo, the portion of the bill with the ring is under water. A full view of the bird is below.

  1. Hi Chris — As one of the people with the wrong answer in your quiz, I can see that the grebe in the quiz picture is looking at us quizzically & thinking “I’m going to fool a lot of you”!
    I was in Hartford for the weekend. Spring was just lovely there.
