Northwest Ohio: The Warbler Capital of the World

Witness northwest Ohio’s spring migration phenomenon

Northwest Ohio is recognized as one of the best birding areas in North America, especially during spring migration. Check out our guide to make the most of your birding adventures!

You may be surprised to find that birding is one of the top attractions in the Toledo region.  Remarkably, tens of thousands of visitors converge on northwest Ohio each spring from all 50 states, 54 countries and six continents. Amazing, right?

The folks over at Black Swamp Bird Observatory aren’t surprised. They knew the natural phenomenon of the spring bird migration could turn the Lake Erie shoreline and beyond into a tourism mecca, so they launched The Biggest Week in American Birding in 2009 and are proud to be celebrating their 14th year May 5-14, 2023, headquartered at Maumee Bay Lodge & Conference Center
