What’s New–Current

New eBird Hotspots

Ashtabula County
Northeast Ohio Regional Airport
Thanks to Lydia Machczynski for suggesting this location as a hotspot. The roads adjacent to the airport can be good for winter raptors.

Highland County
Rocky Fork SP–South Beach and Boat Ramp
Thanks to Dale Bailey for suggesting that we add this hotspot at Rocky Fork State Park.

Stark County
Boliver Dam (Stark County)
Thanks to Jon Cefus for adding this hotspot and writing tips for birding here. The Bolivar Dam area is in two counties, Stark and Tuscarawas. Please see the Bolivar Dam page for the location of the county line and the two hotspots.


Lucas County
Thanks to Sherry Plessner for letting us know that two metroparks being developed by Toledo Metroparks have recently received official names. These locations have been renamed in eBird.
Manhattan Marsh Preserve Metropark
This location has been known as Manhattan Marsh for some time. Toledo Metroparks is adding “Preserve” to the name.
Glass City Metropark
Formerly known as “Riverside Drive Marina District,” this area is being redeveloped into a new Metropark.

County Page New Features
I have added a Google Map to each county page and rearranged the page so that the list of all the hotspots in the county is in the left column. This brings the list closer to the top of the page when you are viewing the website on a smartphone.
