Some of the Wildlife you could see

Fox Squirrel

On a hot summer evening you may get to see a fox squirrel just hanging around.

 

When you take the time to get outside and visit the marsh any time of the year, you can get to see some incredible sights.

 

This photo was taken late on a hot, humid summer evening.

Mink

Chance encounter with a monk on the boardwalk

Then again you could have a chance encounter with a mink as we did on a sunny afternoon in March if the wind is in your favor.

 

Birding can be spectacular from late April to the end of May as thousands of migratory birds move through northwest Ohio.

Birds

On the boardwalk during spring migration the birds can sometimes be as curious about us as we are of them.
This Chestnut sided warbler, was almost too close to photograph.
