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.
