Yes, it is time for another diabolical ID quiz. This one is all about ducks, and, to make it a bit easier, just drakes. The rules are the same as the last one: put your guesses in the comments, making sure to indicate which picture each guess applies to. And use the FULL common names of the birds when you guess, that is, if you are guessing that a bird is a teal, specify the species, as in “Green-winged Teal.” No prizes are available, just the undying admiration and respect of the folks who read and write this blog.

Best of luck and I’ll be checking in on occasion to see how the guessing goes. An answer post will be up by Wednesday.

Update: Because numbers 3 and 5 were too easy I’m adding a sixth picture that is super diabolical!
