Big Sit….. Preview

This Sunday I am participating in the Big Sit with Tom Heatley and friends at Lk St. Clair Metropark… Basically, we sit in a 17ft cirlcle and record all the birds that we see that day… Last year was my first year and it was fun… So at daybreak I stopped by the park and looked at the area that we are going to be using… as the sun was rising, I see someone up on the hill over looking the Point rosa marsh… its Tom…. I hung out for awhile and it was very active with Sparrows and Palm Warblers everywhere…. We also managed to see Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, Dark-eyed Juncos, Marsh and Winter Wren and huge flocks of Red-winged Blackbirds… I had to head off to work, but I look forward to returning on Sunday and hanging out for the whole day….
