Big Sit

This is an annual event where we hang out at Coldwater Spring from sunrise to sunset and document all the birds we see and hear. It's a great way to enjoy fall migration and learn more about native sparrows, thrushes, hawks and warblers. You can learn tips from other birders, help document what we see in eBird or iNaturalist or help chat with the curious public as they wonder what the heck we are doing. It's a fun all day birding party!

It's ok if you're not the best birder out there. If you can point out a bird, you are qualified for the Big Sit.
