Friday, April 20th: Twitching Around Lower Manhattan – Guided Birdwatching Tour

Twitching Around Lower Manhattan
The Clocktower Gallery (108 Leonard St., 13th Fl., Manhattan)
3-7pm tours on the hour
Free, RSVP required: events@artonair.org

To “twich” is to attempt to see a rare bird in a location that other birders have reported chance sightings. On this guided audio tour, Alaina Stamatis leads you on the trail of local perching birds, songbirds, and birds of prey that have gone extinct since their last sighting. This hapless search draws upon many of life’s own ill-fated pursuits. The tour follows a clear path through lower Manhattan (beginning upon exiting the Clocktower Gallery). Participants will be loaned a camouflage poncho and camouflage binoculars, in order to better stalk the birds.
