p64 thunderbird hassler is a period 64 oscillator discovered by carybe on November 3, 2018 in a fourfold form using apgsearch. Its monomerized version is the second smallest known oscillator of this period, after Merzenich's p64. It consists of a thunderbird and a blinker being hassled using the sparks from two figure eights. It has cis and trans isomers in which the figure eights are oriented differently relative to the rest of the oscillator.
A 13-glider synthesis of this oscillator was posted on the day of its discovery.
