What’s New in Birding in Ohio
New eBird Hotspots
Camp Road, Homerville
Camp Road, Township Road 36, is lightly traveled and stretches north for 3 miles from US-224 to Old Mill Road. The road traverses privately owned properties. Please view birds from the roadside only.
Valley View Metro Park (not yet open to the public)
Thanks to Mike Edgington for suggesting this hotspot. Summit Metro Parks acquired the 195-acre former Valley View Golf Course fulfilling the long-term vision of connecting three parks—Cascade Valley, Gorge and Sand Run—creating 1,700 contiguous acres of natural green space. While the park is not yet open to the public, this hotspot is being used by authorized birders for a bird census.
