Hello, After nineteen years of hosting the Official Big Sit!, Bird Watcher's Digest has passed the hosting duties back to the New Haven Bird Club. The NHBC started the Big Sit in 1992. Then, in 2001, Bird Watcher's Digest became the host. I'm not sure why the hosting duties have changed hands, but the event will take place the weekend of October 10 and 11, 2020. The event is essentially the same as it's always been, the big difference now is that totals will be reported via ebird. All the information you need about the Big Sit can be found here: https://www.thebigsit.org/
Of course, fitting as many people as possible into a 17 foot diameter circle may not be a great idea right about now. The hosts of the Big Sit have addressed Covid-19 concerns on their webpage.
Good birding, Ted Drozdowski Waxahachie, Ellis County, Texas
