Spokane Audubon is inaugurating an activity for members (including new members) to increase awareness and enjoyment of local birding.  

Big Day:  Go birding anywhere in the SAS area (NE WA) for several hours or all day.  

Big Sit:   Get comfortable in your own home/yard. Watch as much as possible on the chosen day. Report your species list as explained above.

Here's how you participate:

1)  Make sure that your membership is up to date (at least, by the submission deadline)

2)  Choose a day between April 22 and April 30th (Earth Day Week)

3)   Choose a category for your participation:

     A)  Adult Individual Big Day

     B)  Adult Group Big Day

     C)  Adult Big Sit

     D)  Child (6-13) either Big Day or Big Sit

     E)  Teen (14-18)   Big Day

4)  On or before May 5, 2017 submit a list of species seen, in a Word document or in the body of an email.

A) Include the date of your Big Day / Big Sit

B) Include the category of participation

C) Include your name and contact information and the names of all who participated with you

D) Total the number of species. You don’t have to count the individual birds, just the species.

5) Submit it to: jemichaels1955@gmail.com with Big Day or Big Sit in the subject line.

Optional: We encourage you to also submit the list to eBird, but it's not mandatory.

Results will be announced at the May 10th Audubon meeting. Modest prizes will be awarded to the winner of each category.
