Global Big Day

Join CLC and the Alan Devoe Bird Club to be part of the Global Big Day! Led by bird club member and ornithologist, Michael Nicosia, we will explore the different habitats at Drowned Lands Swamp and collect data to be part of birding’s biggest day! We will discuss the use of the eBird resources for submitting birding check lists that contribute to important global data sets.

What is Global Big Day? Every year from midnight to midnight on the first Saturday of May, bird enthusiasts around the world report bird sightings via e-bird. Last May, more than 30,000 people around the world participated, reporting more than 7,000 species in a single day!
