Clinton County
Culberson Woods State Nature Preserve
We moved the marker for this hotspot near the parking area on OH-730 to make it easier for birders to find on a smartphone when they begin a walk at Cluberson Woods. Thanks to Peter Kleinhenz for noting that the old location of this hotspot was not leading birders to the correct location.

Hamilton County
Bender Mountain Nature Preserve
We have merged the Bender Mountain–Loop Trail hotspot into the hotspot for the nature preserve. All the trails at this nature preserve begin at a common trailhead. Thanks to Brian Wulker, the eBird checklist reviewer for Hamilton County, for suggesting that we need only one hotspot for all the trails at Bender Mountain.

Hocking County
Kessler Swamp State Nature Preserve
Thanks to Tom Fishburn for providing photos of Kessler Swamp.

Muskingum County
Dillon State Park
We have moved the marker of the general location for all of Dillon State Park away from the beach because we have established a new hotspot for the beach and adjacent trails. The general hotspot is now located near the park office. If you have a checklist at the general location that reports only birds observed at the beach, you may change the location to the new hotspot at the beach. It is acceptable to leave checklists at the general location.

Perry County
Tecumseh Lake
Thanks to Steven Thompson for providing photos of Tecumseh Lake.

Summit County
Crystal Lake, Akron
We have added the community name to this hotspot because there is a newly established hotspot at another Crystal Lake in Clark County.
