TIME CHANGE! Magee Marsh and Metzger Marsh, NW Ohio
Sunday, May 13, 2018
Magee Marsh Wildlife Area
PLEASE NOTE! An earlier version of this announcement said to meet at the Plymouth Road location or at Magee Marsh at 8:30 AM. This is incorrect; participants not meeting at Plymouth Road should meet at the Magee Marsh Location at 7:15 AM.
Magee Marsh is an internationally renowned migrant trap where birds stop to refuel before their long flight across Lake Erie. Warblers, flycatchers, sparrows, and thrushes are just some of the many types of birds you can see there. Birders may see more than 100 species. Meet at the park-and-ride lot at Plymouth Road and US 23 at 5:50 AM to arrange carpools for a 6:00 AM sharp departure. Or meet the group at the warbler sign near the boardwalk entrance at Magee Marsh at 7:15 AM. Karen plans to return in the late afternoon, but individual drivers and their carpools may arrange to come back at any time.
Leader: Karen Markey
