Big Sit Day on Sunday, October 13, 2019, from 7 am to 3 pm. It’s like a tailgating party that’s for the birds! We will set up in our count circle in the parking lot by our visitor’s center to bird all day, counting all the species we see flying, swimming or walking by! Bring chairs, binoculars, snacks, and hats. All invited. This national event is held at many count circles throughout the USA annually during Fall migration. You don’t have to stay all day but do come out. Finish the weekend with our Tally Rally dinner locally at @5pm.
