Toledo Christmas Bird Count

Compiler: Matt Anderson
Email: Matt_Anderson@AndersonsInc.com (preferred)
Phone: 419-891–6527

First Count: 1927

Meet at Denny’s restaurant on Buck Road just off I-75 at 6:30 a.m. for breakfast and strategizing. Groups will depart from there. A countdown will be held at Tony Packo’s on the corner of Front and Consaul Streets starting around 5:00 p.m.

Count Area: Toledo, Oregon, Northwood, and Rossford

The 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.

Meeting times and places are subject to change, so stay tuned for changes on this page.
