Pareidolic Robot

Robots are designed to perform precise and repetitive operations with relentless efficiency, performing the tasks we find too laborious or  dangerous. However, could these robots be deployed to improve the efficiency of our leisure time by performing tasks we enjoy? Could intelligent machines bird watch for us or look for four-leaf clovers? Could they optimise our pastimes, searching for patterns and spectacle in nature that would be imperceptible or too time-consuming for us to find for ourselves?
