Tips for birding T. J. Evans Park
There are two entrances to the park, both east off of OH-13 north of Newark and south of the 21st Street traffic signal. There is ample parking at either entrance. The main features of this park are four old gravel pits, which are regularly stocked for fishing. However, the birding here can be excellent as the park edges border the North Fork of the Licking River, and brushy riparian habitat surrounds the pools. Warblers, thrushes, orioles abound during migration. All the regular central Ohio nesters can be found here, as well as osprey and bald eagle.
