Big Sit Report

Today (Sunday, Oct. 9) is The Big Sit! We're sitting in our birding tower at Indigo Hill, near Whipple, OH and although the weather is fairly nasty (cold, damp, drizzly) the birding so far is really good. We stand at 48 species at 11:00 am EST. I started the Sit last night with a veery calling as it flew overhead at about 1:15 am. I went up in the tower for good at 5:30 am. Joining our Sit thus far are: Jim "Tiny" McCormac, Jen Sauter, Debbie and David Griffith, Steve McCarthy, Sarah Brady, Matthew Williams, and Bob Scott Placier. My beloved Julie Z just fed everyone her famous apple crisp.

Latest species: rock dove!

More later.
