There are two national/global birding events coming up in October and both are covid-compatible and sort of social (in that lots of people are participating nation-/world-wide even as people might go out individually).
First, a reminder that the annual *Big Sit* organized by the New Haven Bird Club is coming up on October 10-11. More info on http://thebigsit.org. I'll be doing a Big Sit near Haskell's Beach, probably on the 10th, and possibly another one by the UCSB Campus Lagoon on the 11th.
Also, the *eBird October Big Day* is taking place on October 17. Info here <https://ebird.org/octoberbigday>. I looked through the archive for this email list and it seems like several Big Days have been done here in spring, but I couldn't find any for the fall. I might go birding at least part of the day. If anyone has any tips for how to plan a Big Day here in the fall, or wants to join forces (in a socially distant manner), feel free to reach out.
