Saturday, October 12, THE BIG SIT! AT ANN LEE POND (Albany County; all day)

Coordinators: Tom and Colleen Williams 518-857-2176trwdsd@yahoo.com

We will have registered a count circle for the 2019 Big Sit, which will be conducted from the open picnic area at the north end of Ann Lee Pond in Colonie. If you aren't familiar with the Big Sit, you'll find more information here:

About the Big Sit

The idea is for a group of birders to observe as many species as possible in a 24-hour period from a 17-foot diameter circle set up in a strategically located spot. We will only attempt to do the daylight hours for our purposes. A small group of us will set up the location at 7:30 a.m. and staff it until noon. Anyone who wishes to come by at any point during the day is welcome!! Even if you can only stay for an hour, that will enable others to leave the circle for a short time to forage for food and facilities at nearby businesses. Bring a portable chair, your binoculars, and some snacks and drinks. If you want to stretch your legs, there is a nice loop trail around the pond, too. We hope to see you there! Map is here:
