The sixth annual Queens County Bird Club Big Sit will take place at the Battery Harris Platform at Fort Tilden in, you guessed it, Queens, on Saturday, 12 October. (If we get horrific weather we’ll move it to the 13th.)
The Big Sit is an all-day-long event where we seek to see as many species as possible from a single location in 24 hours (though we usually start an hour or so before dawn and go until dark). Last year we crushed our record when we saw 91 species and we hope to at least come close to that tally again this year.
If you want to come you don’t have to spend the whole day. You can come for a quick visit, an extended stay, or join us for the whole shebang. Feel free to bring snacks and warm beverages!
P.S. The Queens County Christmas Bird Count will be Sunday, 15 December, this year if you can’t get enough birding in the best borough in NYC. We’d love to have some more folks join the count this year!
