Biggest Week in Birding in America!

Time to grab the binoculars, and take a walk in the Maumee Valley. This coming week is ideal for bird watching, as migrant warblers, vireos and others make their return to the Great Lakes, and the new leaves on the trees are still small enough not to obstruct the view above.

“We will accept walk-in registrations at the festival registration table at Maumee Bay Lodge and Conference Center and at Black Swamp Bird Observatory. Cost for walk-in registration is $20. The registration table will be open from 7 A.M. – 7 P.M. Thursday, May 2nd through Friday, May 10th.
