This will be our 13th year participating in the annual Big Sit! - We will sit in one spot out on the Provo Airport Dike all day and watch birds.  We will be sitting at the SW Corner.  The same spot as last year.  We will start at 6 a.m. and finish at dusk. Come anytime you like.   We may take a break during the slow time of the day, somewhere between Noon and 5:00 pm.  You can call us at 801-360-8777.   Here is a link to a map with a marker on our sit spot - https://maps.google.com/?q=40.20621+-111.72920
