Breeding Shorebirds of Illinois

Illinois Audubon featured a series of three articles authored by Sheryl DeVore and Steven D. Bailey on the shorebirds of Illinois. The final segment (Fall 2021) discussed some of the most common Illinois shorebirds that nest in the Prairie State. Hopefully you’ll ace the questions about the common species, but we’ll put your knowledge to the test with questions about the shorebirds on the opposite end of the spectrum, those making only rare appearances in Illinois. This quiz was written by Kathy Andrews Wright and Matt Hayes.
