Ottawa NWR, Magee Marsh
Magee has a boardwalk through a small woods, right next to the lake. So the migrating warblers and other birds stop in this small woods to rest and because they are hesitant to cross the lake, especially in bad weather. So bad weather for birds, might mean good birding for birders. There were crowds of birders and standing room only for the warbler show.
On May 13th we did a book signing at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge and introduced people to our line of Stokes Birding Series binoculars. By customer request, we even signed some people's binoculars!
