This road traverses privately owned properties. Please view birds from the roadside only. A White-faced Ibis has been reported recently at this location. If you submitted a checklist at a personal location, please change your location to this new hotspot. Thanks to James Muller for suggesting the hotspot.

Tuscarawas County

Schoenbrunn Village
The primary area of birding interest and accessibility is the portion west and south of Delaware Drive Southeast. Approximately 125 acres of land are open free of charge to the public year round for walking, birding, and picnics. Located in New Philadelphia, Schoenbrunn Village is the site of several Ohio firsts—settlement, church, schoolhouse and code of laws. The village, restored to appear as it did more than two centuries ago, includes the original cemetery and 16 reconstructed log structures, as well as the church and gardens. Thanks to Dan Kramer for suggesting this hotspot.


Roadside Birding
There are many locations, especially in rural counties, in Ohio where you can view birds from your vehicle. Rural roads through agricultural lands, state forests and wildlife areas, “skypools” that form after a rain, airport runways near public roads, cemeteries, the wildlife drive at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, all are examples of places you can do roadside birding.
