About This Quiz

Every country around the world has national symbols. They can be anything from flowers to plants, from anthems to animals. And we're going to focus on the animals today, particularly the birds. We're also going to zoom in on one continent in particular, and that is Europe. We want to know if you can name the national birds of lots of European countries. In fact, can you match each bird to their country? There's a lot of ground (or air) to cover, since Europe contains 50 countries.

And please don't be alarmed if you see the same bird twice. Like many other things that these European continents share, many of them also have the same flapping, tweeting, egg-laying national birds. On the flip side, some countries have more than one national bird, so they will appear multiple times in this quiz. So the possibilities could be endless. This is why we've been kind enough to add in some hints for you, just in case this quiz ruffles your feathers. 

So, if you're ready to test your European bird knowledge, go ahead and get started on this quiz. Will you end up flying with the best of them, or will you be grounded like a penguin? Let's find out.
