Did you notice something different with the Spanish word for 'penguin'? It is 'pingüino'. Notice that above the 'u' there are two dots. This is another type of accent mark used in Spanish. It is not seen often and in 'American Spanish' it is generally not used. However, you should be aware that in certain words, you may see it. Therefore, for this quiz series, you will need to remember to spell the word with the two dots above the 'u'.

Now let’s fly right on over to 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 all capitalized bird or which word describes birds.
