The Big Sit!

October 09, 2022 - Lincoln, NE

No registration needed. Questions to scp@audubon.org; 402-797-2301.

The Big Sit is a friendly challenge that asks the question "How many birds can we count from one location?"

Join us for food, fun, and birds. Grab a chair or blanket and come enjoy the "tailgate" of birding. Stay for a while or the whole day, everyone is welcome! We’ll be at the south side of Holmes Lake near the boat launch for accessibility. (Map available for download below.) Cassandra Dean, Nebraska’s Birdability Captain, will be joining us. Restrooms will be available at the Holmes Lake Golf Course. Binoculars will be available to borrow. No registration is needed. Event will happen rain or shine and will only be canceled if conditions are unsafe or stormy.

The Big Sit is an annual, non-competitive birding event held around the world to promote birds and the birding community.
