October 12 is birder game day...
The 2008 Big Sit!
Mark your calendars for this worldwide event hosted by Bird Watchers Digest and sponsored by Swarovski and our friends at Alpen Optics and Wild Bird Centers
The Big Sit is a day of sitting and watching ... birds!
Kickoff is 12AM at your favorite birding location. For 24 hours, players identify birds from inside a 17-foot-diameter circle. The event is non-competitive, but contestants do try to top prior years' scores.
To officially join the fun, register your birding circle here.
So gather your birding buddies, pack the coolers, pull out the grill, make the potato salad, get your gear organized (beer pong and corn toss equipment optional) and find your spot to spend a Sunday sitting in front of the natural world.
