The Big Sit! is a free, annual, international birding event open to anyone, anywhere in the world. The Big Sit! was founded in 1992 by fun-loving members of the New Haven (Connecticut) Bird Club.
Prairie Falcon Audubon’s Big Sit! will take place on Saturday, October 8th at Karl Ruprecht’s home at the edge of the Hagerman Wildlife Management Area. The Big Sit! is like a Big Day or CBC. We will try to find as many species as possible in about 12 hours. There is one critical difference – all observations are made from within a circle that’s 17 feet (5.2 meters) in diameter. We really don’t plan to strictly follow this rule…. you can join in the fun any time, for as long as you’d like, and you can sit on the deck and watch birds (within the circle), or take a saunter around the WMA. At 10:00 AM we’ll have potluck brunch. Everyone is welcome! Just bring your binoculars and something to share if you plan to come at brunch time. Register and we will provide you with instructions about getting to Karl’s house in Hagerman.
