The Cincinnati Bird Club will kick off the new club season with a trip to East Fork State Park. East Fork has quite a variety of habitat, so there is a good chance of finding a number of bird species. Our first stop will be the beach where we should find gulls and maybe some shorebirds. Bald Eagles are usually present as well as Osprey. We may also find Red-headed Woodpecker, too. From there we will work our way to different field, woodland, and edge habitat in search of migrant warblers and other birds.
We will meet at the East Fork State Park Office 3294 Elklick Road Bethel, OH 45106 on the South Side of the lake at 8:00 am. From the west on SR 125 turn left where RT 222 goes right, then the entrance to the park is the next left. Enter the park and the office is about a mile (or less) on the right. There are signs to direct you into the park. Our first stop will be the beach and from there we will make our way around the lake.
