Rick Asamoto will lead a trip to reservoirs and lakes in the Lima and St Mary’s area. Rick is well known in the Western Ohio birding community and brings a wealth of knowledge about the area and years of experience in bird identification. We will meet in West Chester to get organized – car pool and caravan to meet Rick at a destination closer to the birding spots. The trip will start at Metzger/Ferguson Reservoirs in Lima OH at 9:00-9:30 a.m. After hiking the dikes, we will continue west to Williams and Bresler Reservoirs. Various spots around Grand Lake will be our final destination. Locations may change based on activity. These areas are great for waterfowl and migration. Who knows, we may catch a vagrant. We plan to have lunch (pack it or fast food) in Celina. The focus for early afternoon will be Grand Lake. Rick will cover as many sites as time permits. This is a great opportunity to bird with Rick.
Plan for a long day! It will take approximately 2 hrs to drive from the meeting location to Lima OH. The trip will end no later than 3:00 PM, returning to the West Chester meeting location by 4:30 to 5:00 pm.
Meeting Location: Meijer Parking lot (Park and Ride), 7390 Tylersville Rd, West Chester Township, Oh
