Audubon Adventures

Hunter and Hunted


An animal’s name is often a clue that tells you something about the animal. For example, a giant fruit bat is big and eats fruit. A red fox’s fur is red. You get the idea. The names of animals can also give you clues about their habitat—where they live. Some include the name of a plant that is common where the animal lives. And some include the name of the habitat itself.

The names of the six bird species below are clues to where those birds live. Look at the habitat pictures and read the descriptions. Then drag each bird to the habitat where you think it lives. Be sure to do this puzzle with the sound on!
