What is a Big Sit! you ask? It is a birding competition where the participants must bird from the confines of a 17-foot circle. For 2021, this circle is expanded to 50-feet. Only birds that are seen or heard from that circle can be counted.

Stop by the circle, meet Team “Off Their Nuthatches”, and discover one of the fastest growing hobbies in the nation. Learn how to identify birds by sight and sound. Learn the tools of the trade and simple skills to make birding easier and fun!

The count circle is on the lakeshore trail near the restrooms in the Lakeview camping loop.
