What is a Big Sit?
Big Sits are counting events with the aim of finding as many species of bird as possible while staying within a defined circle.
This accessible park is perfect for people who use wheelchairs, walkers, canes, scooters or for folks with grumpy joints! We will visit one of Toronto’s vibrant green spaces in search of the millions of migrating birds crossing over the city.
Participants are encouraged to use the eBird app during this event, clipboards and counting lists will also be available.
Kowa – Optics Provider will also be on-site with binoculars to test in the field, and representatives to connect with!
How to Prepare
Dress for the weather! Bring water, a hat, an umbrella and sunscreen. Bring binoculars if you have them. We will support your visit with binoculars and bird materials.
There will be a limited number of chairs provided. Please register for a timeslot below and indicate whether you require a chair, or if you will be bringing your own. Attendees are also welcome to bring a blanket or sit on the grass – however you are most comfortable!
