Hello PA Birders,
The first Saturday in October has been designated October Big Day by Cornell Lab. Why October? It is spring in the southern hemisphere and migration is still ongoing in the northern hemisphere. The Lab has been encouraged by the great participation in Global Big Day in May over the past 4 years that they wanted to try it in October. The results will be tabulated in eBird. I anticipate October's eBird Challenge will be an encouragement to participate in October Big Day.
