THE BIGGEST WEEK IN AMERICAN BIRDING – May 6 - 15, 2016 Sandusky County is in the midst of the Migration Highway, which gives us the opportunity to see many species of birds. We also have the second largest concentration of nesting Bald Eagles in the State of Ohio. Great birding spots include Pickerel Creek Wildlife Area, Blue Heron Reserve, White Star Park, Wolf Creek, Creek Bend Farms and other parks in the county.

January Midwinter brings small visitors from the north. They find shelter in meadows, woodlands and marshes. You can find a variety of waterfowl wherever there is an opening in the river, bay or lake ice.

May Warbler-mania strikes! Many species of these colorful songbirds come to the area to rest and refuel before continuing their journey. THE BIGGEST WEEK IN AMERICAN BIRDING – May 6 - 15, 2016.

June Nestling season begins. Each bird finds their favorite habitat (field, thicket, tree-top, marsh). Birding is at its best as the last of the shorebirds are heading north.

July Singing begins to wane; nesters are busy nestlings. The first southbound sandpipers and plovers appear.

August The height of migration from south-bound shorebirds takes place on mudflats or marshes of any kind.

September The warblers return in large numbers in the fall. However, they’re quieter and duller in color.

October

February The moderate temperatures in the last half of the month bring the first robins, killdeer, woodcocks and blackbirds.

March After the frozen marshes begin to thaw, the flights of migrating waterfowl begin. Early flights of pintails, mallards, tundra, swans, black ducks and many others follow the freeze line.

April Spring migration increases in intensity, bringing over 300 species of birds to the area. A large number of raptors, the first waves of shorebirds and a wide variety of songbirds appear.

Indians call this the “Month of sparrows” – in weed patches everywhere. A few you might see are the white-throated sparrow, swamp sparrow and the fox sparrow.

November Migrant songbirds have mostly cleared out. Huge flocks of bonaparte gulls and red-breasted merganser invade. Marshes can be thick with waterfowl.

December Winter sets in and shorter days sometimes bring boreal songbirds.
