Witness the amazing return of neotropical migrants during the height of spring migration at what is aptly-described as “the Warbler Capital of the World” – Magee Marsh, on the south shore of Lake Erie in northwestern Ohio. The famed boardwalk winds through a 7-acre woodlot that is strategically positioned between Lake Erie and freshwater marshes of Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge. Large numbers of warblers, vireos, orioles, thrushes and cuckoos drop into this haven during their northbound journey, providing excellent up-close opportunities for birders and photographers. Join OAS and and guide Gabriel Lugo of Wildside Nature Tours May 13 - 18, 2024 as we explore this very special trip. 6-14 Participants. Cost $2,200. Tour information visit: https://wildsidenaturetours.com/wildside-tour/ohio-migration-warbler-oas/. Questions and reservations contact Deborah at info@orangeaudubonfl.org.
