Birding Tours

Find a surprising diversity of birds with guided tours

Discover the surprising diversity of birds that call Bryant Park home during migratory season with guided tours by NYC Audubon. Located in the heart of Midtown, Bryant Park is a hotspot for avian visitors and birders alike. Past sightings include warblers, tanagers, vireos, thrushes, and even a Chuck-will’s-widow!

Tours will be capped at 20 participants to allow for social distancing, and each walk will open for registration two weeks in advance. In order to accommodate demand and ensure a prompt start time, slots will be turned over to the standby list at 8:05am for morning walks and 5:05pm for evening walks. Please arrive early and check in with a Bryant Park employee to secure your registered slot, or to be added to the standby list.

Tours begin at Heiskell Plaza. Look for the birding sign!
