Birding Tour with Tristan Lowery
September 10, 2022: 7:30 am - 8:30 amFree
Join tour leader Tristen Lowery on this late summer birding tour in Washington Park. Urban greenspaces like Washington Park offer the perfect opportunity for city dwellers to enjoy and connect with wildlife without traveling outside of their neighborhoods. Besides being fun, birding in city parks can help educate the public on both global and local environmental issues by introducing them to avian visitors from hundreds – even thousands – of miles away.
STARTING POINT: this easy walk will begin at ENGLEWOOD & STATE at 7:30am. Bring binoculars and a field guide if you have them, and make sure to dress comfortably for the weather and a moderately-paced stroll through the park.
Tour leader Tristan Lowery began birding seriously in 2009 while living in New York City. Since moving to Albany in 2012, he’s continued a devotion to birding in urban spaces. Tristan has led birding walks in Washington Park for the Washington Park Conservancy and at Albany Rural Cemetery for the Friends of Albany Rural Cemetery, in addition to other local trips for the Hudson- Mohawk Bird Club and Audubon Society of the Capital Region. Tristan currently serves as the president of the Hudson-Mohawk Bird Club and writes the weekly “Birds and Booze” column at the blog 10,000 Birds.
