The Little Sit

Registration is closed

If you want to l earn how to identify the birds of North Texas, the Little Sit is the perfect way to start.  Modeled after Cornell's "Big Sit", a group of dedicated birders meet once a month at the end of Pad H on the West side of Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge. Click here for a map.

The bird-counters keep track of the number and species of birds that are observed and the data is entered into eBird each month.  An expert "bird identifier" will be present at each Sit.  The public is welcome to join us for the count--no experience is needed.

Dates for 2022 are:  April 2, May 2, June 4, August 6, September 5, October 1, November 7, and December 3.  We begin 30 minutes before sunrise to watch the birds wake up and begin to feed. 

Bring a chair and binoculars, if you have some.  We usually stay out for 3-4 hours, but you are welcome for all or part of the LIttle Sit.
