Greetings to birding friends in the Seattle area and beyond. For those unfamiliar, the The Big Sit! <https://www.thebigsit.org/> was founded in New Haven, Connecticut in 1992 and is conducted annually for fun, internationally in fact. Without question, this is birding’s most sedentary event (also designated The Big Snack by Neil our founder). This year, veteran devotees (AS, KS, AG, EC et al) are again joining together for an autumn dose of Community Science and Camaraderie over birds. Specifically, the South Meadowlarks will take up our posts in the required 17-foot diameter circle, from pre-dawn until who knows when on Saturday, October 8. The goal is to identify as many species as possible by sight and / or sound (to date, our team record is 56 species), and per the rules, participants cannot venture outside of that tiny circle.

We can be found at Discovery Park's South Bluff, Sand Dunes this coming Saturday. Stop by to say hi, encourage the team, get involved in the fun and maybe help find a birdie or two...
