During the annual Big Sit!, we sit inside a 17-foot circle in the North Meadow at Gilsland Farm, counting every bird species we see or hear. This annual international event is hosted by Bird Watcher’s Digest, and it’s FREE and OPEN TO ALL!
The Big Sit! 2019 will occur on the weekend of October 12-13, 2019.
Everyone is welcome, regardless of your birding expertise. Join us for as long as you like — no need to sign up ahead of time! Bring a lawn chair, something warm to drink, a snack or lunch, and join the fun!
Stop by anytime between 6am and 4pm, and bring: binoculars or other optics, clothes appropriate for the weather, and a good attitude! Big Sits are fun, social events where birders of all abilities work together to get the biggest total possible.
