This Spanish Easy Review quiz will test your vocabulary on birds. Do you like to bird watch? If you ever take the time to really study these little creatures you will find that they are quite amazingly entertaining! Some people have made bird watching a lifelong hobby. Whether you are into that or not, it is still fun to learn what each different type of bird is. In fact, did you know that there are close to 21,000 different species of birds in the world? No one knows the exact number because almost every year a new type of bird is found.
Most people only know about 60 different types but, alas, if you are a bird watcher, you know that is sadly a small number.
You won’t have to learn 21,000 bird names here. That’s a relief! But it will be fun to learn the names of at least some of these wonderful creatures. So let’s see which ones are in your first birds vocabulary list (yes, there will be others learned later)!
|English||Spanish||Pronounced (Phonetically) As|
|bird||(el) pájaro||pă-hă-rō (Notice the 'j' has an 'h' sound.)|
|bluebird||(el) azulejo||ă-zoo-lāy-hō (Notice the 'j' has an 'h' sound.)|
|chick||(el) pollito||pō-yē-tō (Remember that chicken is pollo.)|

That’s a list of 14 different birds (the word for bird doesn’t count) leaving you with only another 20,986 left to learn throughout your life - if you’re really adventurous to learn that many! For now, let’s just focus on this list by taking the quiz section. There are ten sentences with a different bird mentioned in each sentence. From the answers given, see if you can determine which Spanish word matches the capitalized bird.
