I will be hosting The Big Sit! 2010 at Avimor on Saturday, October 9th from 6:00 a.m. until noon, but may expand the hours depending on participation.
For more information about the international Big Sit! hosted by Bird Watcher's Digest and founded by the New Haven (CT) Bird Club, click on The Big Sit! logo-link to the left or click here for a video of the Birdchick and Bill of the Birds explaining The Big Sit!
Folks are welcome to come and go as they please between the hours mentioned. Bring binoculars, spotting scopes if you have them, and a lawn chair. Dress for weather and you might bring a snack. Hot chocolate will be provided. I will even throw in a pancake breakfast for birders who really commit! With enough participation we can pull shifts for all 24 hours!
Enthusiastic people of all ages and birding skill levels are welcome to attend. Please RSVP by e-mail if you plan to attend, but drop-in guests are always welcome too. Feel free to stop on by to learn a little more about Idaho's autumn birds or simply to see how we are faring!
Avimor is on Hwy 55, north of Eagle, Idaho, 2.7 miles north of Shadow Valley Golf Course. Upon entering the community on Avimor Drive, take your first left (north) and look for us near the entrance to Foothills Heritage Park.
