DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

The Dubuque Audubon Society is holding their first annual Big sit.

A big sit is a bird watching event where bird enthusiasts come together and let the birds come to them.

The point is to tally the different types of bird species by seeing or hearing them.

Some people have called it a "tailgate party of birders."

The event will take place September 12 at the Julien Dubuque Monument at  the Mines of Spain Recreation Area from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
