A cool event is upcoming…the Big Sit! This annual event, by the Northwest Arkansas Land Trust, is a free “tailgate” for birders. Local experts come together to provide knowledge about the birds and ecology of Wilson Springs Preserve in Fayetteville, all the while swapping stories and watching birds over food and beverage. This year, several researchers will be demonstrating mist netting techniques on site. This is an event for all skill levels, see below for more details.
Hope to see you there,
