Big Sit! Fundraiser
The weekend of Oct 13/14 (day depends on the weather)
year our Connecticut “Big Sit!” champion team, the B.W. Surf Scopers,
(Jim Dugan, Patrick Dugan, Frank Gallo, Tina Green, and Frank Mantlik)
will again defend, and attempt to break, their own Connecticut “Big
Sit!” birding record--107 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 either Saturday, or Sunday,
October 13 or 14, with teams competing worldwide. Our goal is to spot as
many different species of birds as possible without leaving our seats!
This year, Frank Gallo will be away leading a birding trip to Spain, so
we’re calling in our trusted Raven Luna-ticks teammates, Fran Zygmont,
and David Tripp to join us. Please help support their efforts.
We need your help to make this event the best yet – support our
record-breaking quest and the Connecticut Audubon Coastal Center with a
pledge. 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! Your donation is 100%
tax deductible; the money is used to support our conservation and
education efforts. Please visit our webpage at www.ctaudubon.org
for a pledge form, or contact us at 203-878-7440 x 502. We appreciate
your generous support. Thank you! And stay tuned; we’ll post the results
here on our blog.
