About Window on Wildlife
The Window on Wildlife at the Oak Openings Metropark is located in the Buehner Center.
Take a seat in a warm, dry place where you can observe birds and other wildlife attracted to feeding stations and water features. Windows On Wildlife are mini-nature centers open every day during park hours.
This room looks out onto professionally created and maintained wildlife feeding stations outside, with interpretive information inside to help you identify the birds and other animals that you are looking at. Windows on Wildlife are handicap accessible and heated for year-round use by everyone.

About Secor Metropark
Secor Metropark is located on the other side of Bancroft Road from Irwin Prairie and protects one of the region’s better tracts of Black Swamp forest–a habitat that once covered much of northwest Ohio. A highlight of the forest-dependent species that nest here is Cerulean Warbler; a few pairs breed in the park. More common nesters include Red-headed Woodpecker, Yellow-throated Vireo, Veery and Wood Thrush, and American Redstart, Ovenbird, and Hooded Warbler. Spring and fall migration can be good for songbirds as well.
