This year our Connecticut “Big Sit!” champion team, the B.W. Surf Scopers, (Jim Dugan, Patrick Dugan, Frank Gallo, Tina Green, and Frank Mantlik) will defend, and attempt to break, their own Connecticut “Big Sit!” birding record--101 species seen from within a 17-foot circle. This international event, created by New Haven Bird Club, and sponsored by Bird Watchers Digest, will be held on Sunday, October 10, 2010, with teams competing worldwide. Our goal is to spot as many different species of birds as possible without leaving our seats! Help support this record-breaking quest for 102 or more species.
We want you to join us on the big day! The team will be located at the platform at Milford Point, just a short walk down the beach from our Coastal Center. (In the case of rain, they will sit at the tower at the Coastal Center.) Milford Point is arguably one of the best spots in Connecticut for birding, and is a lovely location for you to explore on your own as well.
Now we need your help to make this event the best yet – support the Coastal Center with a pledge. Please fill out the form below; you can make a lump-sum, or a per-species donation for each bird we find. Every dollar you pledge will go directly to support the Connecticut Audubon Coastal Center at Milford Point – truly one of the best birding destinations in the Northeast! We cannot continue our mission without you, and we thank you in advance for your generosity!
Your donation is 100% tax deductible; the money is used to support our conservation and education efforts. Thank you! Frank Gallo
