It's the Biggest Week in American Birding as birders from all over the country and the world flock to Northwest Ohio, The Warbler Capital of the World!

This 10-day birding extravaganza welcomes tens of thousands of visitors from nearly every state along with international travelers to witness the migration of the warblers that converge on the shores of Lake Erie on their annual trek north. 

Activities include guided tours through Magee Marsh and the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge. The birds do their part by delighting and dazzling people who traveled here to see them! Last year 255 species were spotted including 38 warbler species, the most spotted to date.
