About Magee Marsh Wildlife Area
Magee Marsh Wildlife Area attracts birders from all over the world. There are a number of Hotspots set up in eBird to receive your bird checklists when you visit.
Magee Marsh is one of those locations in Ohio where a county line runs right through the middle of the area! Thus, there is no “general” hotspot for all of Magee Marsh. There are eBird Hotspots for each county. The south portion of Magee Marsh Wildlife Area (near OH-2) is in Ottawa County. The north portion of the wildlife area (near Lake Erie) is in Lucas County. (See map below for the location of the Lucas/Ottawa county line.)
There are restrooms located in the Migratory Bird Center.
