How do you identify them?

Spectator ions are generally just group 1 cations or halogens. Since they are stable, they don't want to react.

You would identify spectator ions by writing the complete ionic equation and determining which ions appear in both the products and reactants side. If they appear in both sides, then it means that they do not participate in the reaction and are just spectators.
