Birding Tours

Find a surprising diversity of birds with guided tours

Discover the great 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 12 participants to allow for social distancing. We apologize that registration has filled for the season. Please email if you registered but find you are unable to attend, so we may open the spot to another participant. We do accept walk-in participants, as space allows, on a first-come, first-served basis, but participation will always be capped at 12 people.
