    Thank you for the fun quiz – we have mallards here as well as different teals. Other than that it was guesswork all the way – especially with the females: akin to completing a crossword puzzle!

    We were pleasantly surprised, it’s the females, as in most birds, that prove the most difficult. As you said the beaks can tell you an awful lot.
