The Horicon Marsh Bird Club participates in The Big Sit!, an annual bird watching event organized by Bird Watcher’s Digest. Each year, on the second Saturday in October, the club creates a circle 17 feet in diameter from which participants count all the birds species they can see or hear from dawn to dusk. It’s a ton of fun for novice and serious birders alike.

Over 99 bird species have been identified during our past Big Sits. Download the 2014 Tally
