Here’s A Fun Activity You Can Do on Your Own!

The New Haven Bird Club is holding a Big Sit! birding event on October 10th and 11th. It’s free, and open to everyone.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the concept of a big sit, the idea is to establish a circle 17 feet in diameter and then try to see as many birds as possible from within that circle in one day.

The circle can be anywhere – even in your backyard – and you can bird for as many hours as you want; you can do either day and it doesn’t have to be the full day.

No pre-registration is required. You report your sightings using eBird.
