What’s New in Birding in Ohio
Tips for Birding in Ohio
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.
Check the Roadside Birding index of locations in Ohio where you can view birds from your vehicle.
