Once again it’s that time of year when I make my annual journey northward to Lake Erie and some spectacular migration birding. For the past 5 to 6 years I’ve made it a point to at least make a day trip, if not more, to what I think can be some incredible birding in such a small area. As you well know loads of migrant birds travel through Ohio yearly on their way to where they breed. And one particular hot spot where they can stop and fuel up and rest before crossing Lake Erie is the areas along the shore. Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, Metzger Marsh, Magee Marsh and others can have high concentration of birds at this time of year
So after work on Friday I’ll be setting off in an attempt to get to the lake before it’s too late in the evening to get some birding in. Then I’ll have all day Saturday and Sunday Morning and early afternoon to get a little more birding done before returning home. Granted the weather forecast seems dismal with rain most of the time, but that won’t deter me from trying my best to tick off some really good birds. And hopefully get some decent photos.
So stay tuned.
