Tips for birding Barrett Road
Trespassing is prohibited. Parking is tolerated along either side of Barrett Road, but be certain to pull off the pavement. Be aware that traffic moves very fast along this stretch of road, so exercise caution. The impoundments are on the south side of Barrett Road. A railroad bed to the north blocks the view of the bay (unless you bird from the roof of your car), but Double-crested Cormorants and Bald Eagles can often be seen roosting in the trees along the water.

About Medusa Marsh
Medusa Marsh, also known as Neilson’s Marsh, lies along the stretch of road connecting Bay View and Sandusky. This road runs parallel to OH-2, and can be reached by heading north from either “Exit OH-269 Bay View” or “Exit US-6 Sandusky/Fremont.”
“Medusa Marsh” is a name given to several privately owned, diked wetlands managed for waterfowl. Birders nicknamed this area after Medusa Portland Cement Company that used to occupy this land.
