Bird Quest

Welcome Bird Watchers! For this quest your cell phone is all you need as “binoculars”. Be on the lookout for 5 hidden non-migratory birds native to the San Lorenzo River! I have painted on both sides of cut out wooden silhouettes capturing the birds in flight. They are not painted to size but bigger in hopes of spotting them easier.

All the birds are to be found ONLY on The Tannery Campus.


Once you find them, scan the QR code, learn about them, listen to their song and take their picture. On First Friday December 2nd and Winter Art Market December 10th, come and find me (I’ll be the one wearing wings). Show me the pictures of all 5 birds and get a little prize! 

This project collaborates with the Santa Cruz Bird Club, Native Animal Rescue, local author Lorrie Klosterman, The Bird School Project and nature photographers. 

Thank you to the Santa Cruz Arts Council, the Tannery Art Center and Radius Gallery for your support throughout this project.
