Count Area: Toledo, Oregon, Northwood, Rossford Ohio

Center  of count area is the  corner of Navarre Avenue and Allendorf Road on the east  side of the Maumee River  (Oregon, OH). This includes “Little Cedar Point NWR”  to the East which  can be  very good for water birds along the Lake Erie shoreline. Other good  areas are  Maumee Bay, Erie State Game Area to the north in Michigan, Woodlawn  Cemetery to  the west of the count area, and the open
farmlands to the south.  The areas along  the Maumee River and the Lake Erie shoreline provide some very good habitat for  birds in the  winter.
