Saturday, May 13th   7:30 AM   Buck Creek State Park

We shall meet at the usual place at the corner of Croft and Robert Eastman Roads. We have been seeing lots of birds at Gallagher Fen so we may go there first to see what is moving through. We have seen over 20 species of warblers there already this spring and we should be able to see quite a few on this walk. The cold weather lately has held up the migration some and we might see a good variety today. Call Doug Oeracker at 324-1871 for more information.

Saturday to Sunday, May 20th and 21st  Magee Marsh and Lake Erie

This is the best birding area in Ohio at this time of year. We are going up later this year which gives us a better chance for some of the later migrants. Species that migrate late are some of the flycatchers and Mourning, Connecticut, Canada, and Wilson's Warblers. There should still be lots of other birds still trickling through. Please call Doug Overacker at 324-1871 to let him know when you can meet the group and arrange a meeting place.

The warblers are moving through now and we have recorded about 30 species in the county already this spring. We have also seen many other migrants so far. A few of the late species haven't shown up yet but they should be arriving in the next couple weeks so get out there and see some birds.
