Featured Bird for May 2004:
Black-throated Green Warbler
Adams Lake State Park
38.81 N 83.53 W
Adams County is at the edge of the Appalachian mountain range. Chuck-will's-widow, Wild Turkey, Blue Grosbeak and other species are often easier to find here than anywhere else in Ohio.
Crane Creek / Magee Marsh / Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge
41.37 N 83.09 W
Spring migration here may be even better than Point Pelee -- and two hours closer if you live in Ohio! Go visit the Oak Openings and Irwin Prairie on the west side of Toledo as well.
Green Lawn Cemetery and Arboretum
39.94 N 83.04 W
This is a great spot during spring migration. Birder's are always welcome. You should see almost 50 species of warblers, thrushes and vireos in early May.
Headlands Beach State Park
41.73 N 81.33 N
There are a whole series of birding spots along Lake Erie, just east of Cleveland. Spring migration is very good here, as is the hawkwatching. Continue over to Mentor Marsh State Nature Preserve and finally, the power plant in Eastlake.
40.65 N 83.31 N
In winter, look for hawks and owls. Check the tall evergreens very carefully for Long-eared Owls. At dusk you should see Short-eared Owls skimming over the fields. Depending on water levels, shorebirds and waterfowl can be abundant, especially in migration.
Featured Hot Spot:
29.33 N 94.24 W
Spring warbler fallouts can be spectacular. If you just flew all the way across the Gulf of Mexico, you would plop down here to rest, too! Visit in April and early May.
