Tips for birding the Teel Avenue
Anyone looking for the perfect place to observe point blank Prothonotary Warblers will want to park along Teel Avenue just north of Price Street along Berlin Lake. Several males seem to persist in staying at or near eye level right next to the west side of this empty road. It is a treat for the eyes and ears.

About Berlin Lake
Berlin Lake lies in the northeastern part of Ohio at the junction of Stark, Portage, and Mahoning counties. The lake is located on and is accessible from US-224 and OH-14 and OH-225. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers constructed Berlin Lake in 1942 on the Mahoning River. The Congressionally authorized purposes were flood control, low flow augmentation, water quality control, and water supply. Berlin Lake has a mean depth of 23 feet with a maximum depth of 55 feet. Annual water level fluctuations can be as much as 20 feet. Mud, sand, and gravel make up most of the bottom composition. Rock ledges can be seen along the original river channel at low pool level.
Restroom facilities can be found at the headquarters building, the picnic area by the dam, and the Circle Restaurant in Deerfield.
