My curiosity is pecked

The My curiosity is pecked activity (Pic ma curiosité) is a citizen science project that consists of making an ornithological inventory that could be used by scientists for various studies and bird tracking. In addition, this activity will allow you to become aware of the diversity of birds that surround us on a daily basis and to arouse curiosity about them. This inventory will be managed through the iNaturalist app or webpage, a platform for acquiring and sharing floristic and wildlife observation data, and a community of over one million researchers and naturalists who can help you learn more about nature.

By participating in the My curiosity is pecked project, you get a chance to win one of the many entry prizes.

Observation period: to be determined for 2024
