Bird Scavenger Hunt

May 1, 2021 - Sep 30, 2021, 12:00 am, at Erickson Fields

How to play:

  1. The next time you visit Erickson Fields, keep track of how many of birds you identify by sight or sound. (1 point each)
  2. Take photos. It’s hard to get good photos of birds (they’re flighty), so when you capture one show it off! (5 points per photo)
  3. Post your list and photos on Facebook and tag Erickson Fields Preserve.
  4. Have fun and be safe! While you’re out and about exploring, please remember to follow the CDC’s guidelines for social distancing. Here are some tips for how to prepare before heading out.
