Thinking about the wildlife we are thankful for, we cannot forget BIRDS!

Fall is a great time to get out and appreciate Ohio’s plentiful variety of birds. Right now, many species of birds are grouping together and embarking on long migrations to warmer weather locations for the winter. This makes fall the perfect time to see birds in large groups, such as waterfowl, or birds that don’t spend the whole year in Ohio, like warblers. Birds aren’t just fun to watch and identify, they also play an important role in pest control! Many species of birds eat biting and crop-eating insects that cause trouble for people and farmers. Take time today to appreciate Ohio’s birds. Learn more about common birds in Ohio with the Common Birds of Ohio Field Guide:
