It is time to start thinking about being a participant in a "BIG SIT" close to you. Here in Lancaster County I will be at Middle Creek WMA for the day looking and listening for birds from before sunrise until late afternoon (see dates and information below). This will be the 6th year holding this event at this location and we have averaged right around (70) species each year with a composite list that currently stands at (106) species. So come out and join me as we count birds for a good cause!! You may stay as long as you wish and you can stop by anytime. Bring a chair, some snacks and a drink and dress for the weather. This a very popular area for bird watching and this location almost never disappoints when it comes to birds. There usually is a surprise to be found!!
Hope to see you there!!

What is "The Big Sit!"?
The Big Sit! is an annual, international, noncompetitive birding event hosted by Bird Watcher's Digest and founded by the New Haven (Connecticut) Bird Club. Bruce has established an ideal location at Middle Creek WMA offering him excellent views of a variety of habitats from within a 17-square foot diameter circle.
Anyone can stop by and help Bruce spot a bird or two. With your support of this program, the LCBC can help make an even bigger difference with additional funding of the LCBC Youth Scholarship Fund and increase LCBC's support of the Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area.
Lancaster County Bird Club is a 501(c)3 charity; your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
Contributions in support of Bruce's Big Sit can be made any time before, during, or after the event. Please note "Big Sit" on your contribution. Make checks payable to Lancaster County Bird Club and send to:
