Bird Scavenger Hunt

April 28, 2022, 5:00 pm -
6:00 pm

Join the San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory (SFBBO) for a Bird Scavenger Hunt! Anytime during the Bay Area Science Festival, from April 21 to 30, get outside and observe birds around you! Because observation is an important part of science, we’ll challenge you to find certain birds and observe their behavior.

All you need to do is download the scavenger hunt, find the birds, observe their behavior, and answer as many questions as you can! Then attend our live virtual event to learn more about the birds and share your observations (register for the scavenger hunt to receive the link). This event is great for the whole family and can be done anywhere – outside your window, in your backyard, your neighborhood, or a local park or beach!

There are many ways to participate, and you’ll have chances to receive an SFBBO t-shirt by doing any of the following activities:

  1. Register for the scavenger hunt to receive tips on finding, identifying, and helping birds
  2. Share your scavenger hunt observations by tagging us on social media (@sfbbo on Twitter and Instagram) and mentioning the scavenger hunt (we may also feature your observations!)
  3. Take a photo or scan your completed scavenger hunt and email it to us
  4. Attend our live virtual event.
