VIRTUAL: Big Sit!, Goose Pond Fish & Wildlife Area
Start Date: 10/11/2020 All Day
End Date: 10/11/2020
Event Description:
How many birds can you identify in just one day from a 17-foot diameter circle? Join us for the Big Sit! to find out! The Big Sit! is a tailgate for bird watchers, held across North America and right here at Goose Pond Fish & Wildlife Area (FWA). It is an excellent novice bird watching experience because you can stay in one place, meet other birder watchers, and come and go as you’re comfortable.

This year, Indiana DNR and Friends of Goose Pond are hosting a virtual Big Sit! Throughout the day, you can watch as roving reporters share what they are seeing at various locations at Goose Pond FWA and learn what birds visit Goose Pond FWA and how to identify them. We’ll also share what makes Goose Pond such a special place for wildlife and people. We will be broadcasting Facebook Live sessions throughout the day on @INfishandwildlife or you can tune in for the full event by registering.

For a full schedule and to register, visit When you register for the Big Sit!, you will be sent a link to join the Oct. 11 Zoom meeting and can join us at Goose Pond FWA via Zoom for birds from 7:55 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Oct. 11.
