Birding: Winter birds

Saturday, November 12 8am Sandusky Headwaters Preserve, 2400 State Route 598

Autumn is ending, and fall migration is almost complete as shore birds and forest dwellers have left Ohio for their winter grounds. Waterfowl migration is the main attraction of November as numbers ramp up in the latter half of the month. Join Crawford Park District Land Manager and Naturalist Kyle Bailey for an interactive, family-friendly program suitable for all ages. This program will focus on birding basics such as learning how to identify common Ohio species, when and where to bird, how to bird, what to look for, and much more! Species we are likely to encounter include kinglets, sparrows, creepers, juncos, and more! Please bring binoculars or cameras to better view the birds, but some binoculars will be available. Sandusky Headwaters Nature Preserve is located at 2400 SR 598, 3 miles north of US Route 30.
