The Big Sit at Algonkian Park
October 7, 2023 @ 7:00 am - 7:00 pm
Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy is excited to be partnering with NOVA Parks for a Big Sit at Algonkian Regional Park.
What is a Big Sit?
Some people have compared it to a tailgate party for birders. It is a worldwide annual competition to see how many species of bird can be seen from one stationary location in 24 hours or less.
Who should attend?
Anyone interested in birding from beginner to advanced. If you’re new to birding, you can learn more about it and meet other birders. If you’re an experienced birder, bring your skills and help us ID some species. This is a stationary location, so it’s great for people who aren’t interested in a long bird walk. Plus, we’ll be there all day, so it’s great for those who prefer to sleep late.
We will be set up just west of the boat ramp with views of the river, a wildflower meadow, a grassy field, a wooded tree line and wide open sky. It is also in close proximity to the parking lot. (View location.) We will be there from 7:00am – 7:00pm to count as many bird species as we can see or hear. You can stop by for a few minutes to say hi or bring a chair and stay as long as you like. No registration required.
In case of inclement weather cancellation information will be posted here and on the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy Facebook page.
