What’s New in Birding in Ohio
Mission Oaks Gardens
Thanks to Taylor Shimek for suggesting this hotspot in Zanesville and for providing tips for birding.
The hotspot Stange Rd. @ Krause Rd. has been adjusted accordingly. These roads are on the edge of the National Wildlife Area and birders use it to report birds seen in the agricultural fields on private lands along the roads.
Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge–Two Rivers Unit, O’Neal Road (restricted access)
Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge–Two Rivers Unit, West Portage River South Road
Thanks to Trevor Zook for suggesting hotspots for a newly opened unit of Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge near the confluence of the Portage and Little Portage rivers.
Eagle City Rd. Borrow Pits (view from roadside only)
The Eagle City Road Borrow Pits are not open to entry. We have added (view from roadside only) to this hotspot name.
Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge–Little Portage Unit
Changed the name of “Little Portage River–Upper” to reflect that this has become a unit of the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge.
