Notes From The Field

Cincinnati Nature Center/ Rowe Woods

Today is the first day of my annual Spring vacation. And this year marks the 7th time I’ve made my annual pilgrimage to northern Ohio for spring migration, particularly warblers. The Biggest Week In American Birding Festival is also going on so it’s sure to be packed on the boardwalk at Magee Marsh, as well as Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, and all along the water front.

This year for the first time we’re staying in a cabin at Maumee Bay State Park. Right after we got home from last years trip I made reservations so we wouldn’t miss out. Jon and his family stay in the cabins every year and besides being very nice they’re conveniently located to all the prime birding spots all along Lake Erie.

So this Wednesday we’re checking in to our cabin and hopefully get a little birding in before and extra early start on Thursday. I’m also hoping for better opportunities of getting better photographs of all species of birds I see. Like this Blackburnian Warbler I was able to get while doing a little birding this morning at Rowe Woods.

  1. Good luck. It’s one of my favorite sites but won’t make it this year.
