The 2014 Big Sit!™ was held
on the weekend of October 11-12
The Big Sit! is an annual, international, noncompetitive birding event hosted by Bird Watcher's Digest and founded by the New Haven (Connecticut) Bird Club. In 2014, Big Sit circles chose to sit on Saturday, October 11 or Sunday, October 12. Even if you did not register prior to Sitting, you can still register for the Sit today »
Every team that observes this year's "Golden Bird" has a chance to win $500. The Golden Bird will be drawn by The New Haven Bird Club at their January 2015 meeting and the winning team will be selected after that.
The Big Sit! is sponsored by SWAROVSKI OPTIK.

More About the Big Sit!
The concept is simplicity itself: find a good spot for bird watching, sit in one spot for 24 hours, and count all the bird species you see or hear. Learn more about this FREE event from past participants.
