"Our plan was to first walk the roads within several hundred yards of the parking area, looking into the marshes for wading birds and waterfowl. Within the first few minutes, we were observing dozens of swallows around and landing on structures. Mostly Barn Swallows, they were joined by a handful of Tree Swallows and one or two Bank Swallows allowing comparisons of plumage and size." ~ Tim Colborn, Field Trip Leader.
Elegant migrating shorebirds grace the Lake Erie marshes on their way south after nesting in the Arctic. Howard Marsh is about 90 miles from the west side of Cleveland. It is new addition to Toledo Metroparks. Restored wetlands host more than 100 species in July and August, including multiple species of shorebirds.
