Wink Bird-Watching Big Sit: October 10-12, Baywood Park, CA

Call 805.528.0392 for event updates or visit their Web site for more information.
The Southern California locations is: Elfin Forest, Baywood Park, CA.

This is the 14th Annual Big Sit, hosted by Bird Watcher's Digest. This event is free and open to every person in every club in every country!

The Big Sit! is an annual, international, noncompetitive birding event hosted by Bird Watcher's Digest and founded by the New Haven (CT) Bird Club. Every team that observes this year's "Golden Bird" has a chance to win $500. We hope bird watchers from around the globe will unite on this special day by participating in this event (it's free!). The Big Sit! is sponsored by Swarovski Optik, Alpen Optics, and Wild Bird Centers.

Some people have called it a "tailgate party for birders." Today there are Big Sit! circles all over the world, including Guatemala, India, the Netherlands, England, Vietnam, and New Zealand.
The simplicity of the concept makes The Big Sit! so appealing. Find a good spot for bird watching -- preferably one with good views of a variety of habitats and lots of birds. Next you create a real or imaginary circle 17 feet in diameter and sit inside the circle for 24 hours, counting all the bird species you see or hear. That's it. Find a spot, sit in it, have fun.

So far there are only two circles "officially" registered, according to the Web site--in Ohio. It sounds like a fun event; I'll keep watching.
