Istanbul’s newest bird observation tower erected by the Ministry of Forest and Water Management has started attracting birdwatchers and wildlife photographers. Located on one of the hills on the European side of the Black Sea entrance of the Bosphorus, the tower presents an excellent vantage point to watch migrating birds on their semiannual journey from one continent to the other.
