One City on Two Continents
It’s All for the Birds
by Cihan Koru – 16 April 2016
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.

Neither the photographers nor the watchers of birds want to miss the migration of birds which happen in spring and fall of every year. The access to the tower is free. They even lend you binoculars, free of charge.
