Sunday, October 13: All day event

A Big Sit is similar to the bird watching event called a "Big Day". In both events, participants try to count as many birds species as possible. In a Big Day you travel all over a geographical area whereas during a Big Sit you sit (or stand) in one location and count as many species as possible through the course of the day. Bring your own chair (or use the bench seating provided by Chatfield), your favorite beverage and snacks and help us find birds.  We'll keep a Big Sit "day total" and do "hourly counts" so that every hour the birds are "new". This means that whenever you can come there will be "new" birds to add for the hour and maybe even the day! Event is free and open to all ages.

Park at the Heronry Picnic Parking and take the paved path in the back of the parking lot to the Heronry Overlook. Dress for the weather!

Audience: All Ages
