Sit Down and Be Counted!

Starting tonight at midnight I'll be engaging in the sanity-challenging annual ritual of The Big Sit. If you don't know what the Big Sit is, click on the link in the previous sentence. Or search my blog for the posts from prior years. Of use the Google. It's fun, mostly.

I'd take the time to explain about the Big Sit, but I've got to race home to meet the semi-trailer that's hauling a load of junk food to my farm. Yes, for the Big Sit! We'll have enough Snickers and Cheetos on hand to give all of southeastern Ohio an upset stomach. But that's how we roll.

The Whipple Bird Club will be in the hizzle for the Sit, as usual. And when the last bird has been seen and the sun is dropping low in the West, we might just crack open a few bottles of something special in celebration of another great day of birding.

It's not too late to make your own Big Sit circle. It's free, low-key, non-competitive, and, lest we forget—FUN! Just go here and do your worst!

hmmmm... I guess any excuse will do to wash down some Snickers with "a few bottles of something special"...

Maybe next year I'll get involved in a Sit..this year it would just be me. Not a very dramatic Sit. ;)
Have a great time!

May record numbers of species pass by Indigo detected. May your bellies full of cheetos and beer stay settled. Happy Big Sit!

So what was the count total? How many snickers were snarfed? Have you been able to wash off that orange Cheeto "cheese" yet?

We observed 41 species at the Allegheny Front Hawk Watch on Sunday for The Big Sit. We missed some easy ones, but it was a ton of fun birding all day!
