Celebrate Birds! Spring Big Sit at Morven Park
May 18, 2019 @ 6:00 am - 8:00 pm
Join Allison Gallo and Bryan Henson when the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy hosts a Big Sit* style event. We’ll hang out near the Gatehouse at Morven Park from dawn until dusk counting birds. If you are interested in bird watching and aren’t sure how to get involved, come visit. If you want to hang out with other birders and socialize or you just want to check out Loudoun Wildlife’s presence at the Gatehouse, this a great opportunity. No registration required – we’ll be there all day counting birds and would love to see you stop by! We’ll have extra binoculars, field guides, spotting scopes, and knowledgeable counters/guides. (Rain date May 25).
*A Big Sit is a type of event created by Bird Watcher’s Digest where birders count all the birds they can see from a fixed spot (a 17-foot diameter circle) over the course of 24 hours.
To reach the Gatehouse, enter Morven Park on Old Waterford Road, follow the road as far as the parking lot then turn right, then an immediate right again onto a gravel road. There is a sign that says Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy. Follow the gravel road to the Gatehouse.
