The 18th annual Big Sit is next week, October 13th and 14th, 2012.
This will be my second Big Sit. I will be a team of one and will sit at the same location as last year: near a pretty large slough, grasslands, and woods. Last year I saw a total of 29 species and hope to match that total or see over 29 species.
You can sit for as long or as little time as you like and some teams collect pledges for each species they see, which they donate to their favorite nature club or bird observatory.
