Global Big Day has become a May tradition for tens of thousands of eBirders: 24 hours to put your favorite park/county/state/province country/continent on the global birding stage. Last year eBird couldn’t wait a full year between Global Big Days, and October Big Day was born. On 19 October, October Big Day is back! Can we beat last year’s total species count of 6,331 globally, 634 USA, 187 Michigan and 76 in Washtenaw county on a single October day? We will kick things off with a nice walk at Nichols Arboretum at 8:00 a.m. until around 11:00 a.m. Afterwards, for those that would like to continue the Big Day, we will decide where to go from there. Navigate to the cul-de-sac at the end of Riverview Drive (off Geddes Ave near the east end of Dow Field).

Leaders: Juliet Berger & Matthew Spoor
