The Big Sit Bird Count


The Bit Sit is an annual international event hosted by Bird Watcher’s Digest.

We sit inside a 17-foot circle in the North Meadow at Gilsland Farm, counting every bird species we see or hear. Join us for as long as you like, no need to sign up ahead of time! Bring a lawn chair, something warm to drink, snack/lunch and join the fun!

Everyone is welcome, regardless of your birding expertise.
