The biggest week in American birding takes place this month. 

Beginning May 4 and continuing through May 14, more than 60,000 bird watchers will congregate in northwest Ohio to observe 200 species of birds. These migrating birds pause briefly on the southern shore of Lake Erie before making the long trip over the water. 

There will be field trips, speakers, bird walks and workshops with Maumee Bay Lodge serving as the headquarters for the activities. 

If you have any interest in bird watching, or if you just want to be outside with a lot of really nice people, make your way to Maumee Bay. 

We are so lucky to be so close to a phenomenon that attracts people from all over the world. Give it a try. The birds will be there…count on it!
