Bastrop, Texas will be hosting a series come-and-go BIG SIT birdwatching / bird counting circles on the 4th Saturday of the month through October with a sit on the 3rd Saturday in November. It’s easy and fun. Participants see how many birds can be spotted or heard without leaving the circle. It’s great for beginners because more experienced folks will be around to offer guidance. Usually it’s done in a 17-foot circle but our circle will be widened to 50 feet to allow for 6 feet of social distancing between birders (or birder families.) If more people show up, more “circles” may be added.
Please bring whatever you need to be comfortable, whether it be a blanket or chair, binoculars or scope, field guide, water, snacks, etc. You also don’t have to bring anything to participate! Your eyes and ears are enough! Many birders stand at the “sits” and many folks bird by ear and with their naked eyes.
Please note that the locations change each month, with participants going to many different beautiful sites around the county.
November 2021 – Special permission has been granted by the Circle D Civic Association for watchers to be at CIRCLE D Lakes for this specific time only. All other times guests need to be invited by residents. The address is 926 FM 1441, Bastrop, TX 78602.
IMPORTANT PARKING INSTRUCTIONS: Please do not park in the fire station parking lot. You may use the Civic Association’s parking lot to the right of the fire station, or the one behind the fire station (Park Entrance).
