This Nature Challenge was created by Seek (by iNaturalist):
Millions of birds migrate from one country to another to escape cold weather and to find food. Keeping track of when wildlife migrates can help us understand how climate change is affecting the natural world. Seek birds visiting your local area and find out where else they spend their time.
Find 5 birds.
What is Seek? And how do you participate?
Seek (by iNaturalist) is a kid-safe app that helps you get outside, explore nature, and become a master naturalist! Using the camera on a phone or tablet device, Seek helps you name and identify plants, animals, and fungi. Seek also connects you to more information about the species you observe.
New challenges are released at the start of each month. To participate, you will need access to the app on a phone or tablet device. You can seek out plants, animal, and fungi in your backyard, local park, or nature reserve. Give it a go and become a naturalist today!
