About Wilderness Center Important Bird Area
This site is owned and operated by a non-profit organization, including a land trust, focusing on nature education and conservation. It encompasses a large area of mature deciduous woods, coniferous plantings, open areas of planted grasslands, streams, ponds, and small marshes. The diversity of habitats provides excellent stopover characteristics during migration as well as good habitat for a large number of breeding birds.

The Wilderness Center is a major stopover site for migratory birds in spring and fall with records of thousands of songbirds daily. The mature woodlands provide nesting sites for a variety of warblers, thrushes, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, Scarlet Tanagers, flycatchers, vireos, and woodpeckers. The 1999 breeding bird survey recorded 73 nesting species, including eleven nesting warbler species, among them Cerulean, Blue-winged, and Kentucky.

Records are available through the breeding bird surveys and weekly bird walks led by TWC Birding Club members during spring and fall migrations. Christmas Bird Counts have been held at TWC for 30+ years. Results are published in ‘American Birds’ and ‘The Ohio Cardinal’.
