Ohio: The Biggest Week in American Birding
It's called The Biggest Week In American Birding for good reason. Attend this week-long, exciting festival and discover that May is a whopper of a month to be watching birds in Ohio. The Crane Creek, Magee Marsh, and Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge Region of Northwest Ohio present an amazing variety of warblers, waterbirds, shorebirds, songbirds, and resident species for you to enjoy and learn about.
Birds Galore and Experts Aplenty
Why is this unique area teeming with so many warblers and others birds? The southern edge of Lake Erie presents an obstacle birds are hesitant to cross during migration. Until they are ready to make the crossing, the birds rest and refuel in several birding hotspots on the lake's southern edge, providing birders the opportunity to see warblers at eye level and water birds close up. These experiences along with the sheer number of birds you can expect to encounter during this event are bound to amaze bird lovers of all ages.
Chock-full of FREE guided activities, trips, and workshops for registered participants, The Biggest Week In American Birding festival also stars a cast of speakers ready to take you along on the funny flukes and inspiring fortunes of their birding exploits.
