Join fellow birders and hawk watchers for the annual “Big Sit” event – a tally of all bird species as viewed from the Pack Monadnock Raptor Observatory. Come for an hour or stay the whole day, and lend your eyes to the skies. This is a fun event with a friendly-yet-competitive spirit, and all levels of interest and ability are welcome. Bring binoculars, a field guide, food, and drink, and dress for the weather.

Join us anytime from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the top of Pack Monadnock in Miller State Park in Peterborough. Rain/fog date is October 14. This event is free, though there’s a fee to enter Miller State Park ($4 per adult and $2 for children age 6 to 11. Children age 5 and under, and NH residents 65 and older, are free). For more information, please contact Phil Brown at (603) 525-3499 or by email.

Cosponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education and New Hampshire Audubon.
