The Big Sit- Oct. 13-14

The Big Sit is a very relaxed form of birding. Teams sit in a designated circle and count whatever birds you can see within the circle! You can come and go as you please. Typically most circles start from 5-6 am and end around 5 or 6 pm. All you need is a comfy chair, some snacks, and your binoculars! You can read the official rules, get live updates from the Big Sit, as well as see what registered Big Sit circles are in North and South Carolina! If there isn't one near you, consider starting one! Click here for more info on the Big Sit!
