Seek: Neighborhood Challenge

This Nature Challenge was created by Seek (by iNaturalist):

Your mission:

The ability to fly has evolved independently in birds, insects, and bats. Among birds, some species have become flightless but descend from flying ancestors. The same is true for many insects, and all insects are flightless for at least part of their life cycle.

Find 5 species from the taxa:

  • birds (except flightless groups)
  • insects in the subclass Pterygota (winged and once-winged Insects)

What is Seek? And how do you get started?

Seek (by iNaturalist) is a kid-safe app that helps you explore nature and get to know your local species!

Seek identifies and names plants, animals, and fungi by using the camera on a phone or tablet device. Seek also provides facts about the species you observe to deepen your understanding.

You can use Seek anywhere! Try your backyard, local park, or a nature reserve. Exciting new challenges are released monthly.

To try Seek, ask your parent or educator to visit the iNaturalist website. Or, they can click here for more information.
