The Big Sit, an international birding event, has exacting, loose, and frivolous standards. Big Sitters count all
the birds they see or hear from within a circle with a 17-foot diameter. Count sitters may send out scouts and
beaters to find other birds and identify them as long as a Sitter sees the bird from within the circle. All around
the world, on this date, people will Big Sit! Come and join Ed Holub and other recruits any time from (before)
dawn to (after) dusk. Stay for an hour, a morning, or all day. Drop by whenever you like. Every year an hourly
chart is maintained of the birds that Sitters see from the circle. In the past few years Joe Kellner has tallied 55-
65 species. Bring chairs, breakfast, lunch, dinner, picnics, coffee, etc. Bring binoculars, scopes, and field guides.
