Wildflowers at Goll Woods - field trip

On Saturday, May 5, 2018, TNA members will make a field trip to Goll Woods State Nature Preserve. Spring wildflowers will be the focus of the visit, but this ancient forest also has immense trees and abundant woodpeckers and amphibians. TNA was instrumental in inducing ODNR to protect this primeval forest remnant in 1966. Its ancient, towering oaks shelter a myriad of wildflowers, including miterwort, solomon seal, and dwarf ginseng. Goll Woods is located in western Fulton County, a few miles northwest of Archbold. Meet leaders Nancy Bucher and Eric Durbin at 10 am at the parking lot on Twp Rd 26, just south of Twp Rd F. The official hike will last about two hours, but there are additional areas to explore if you have more time. You may email questions to Eric Durbin at

When: Saturday, May 5, 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Where: Goll Woods State Nature Preserve

North Coast Open - special event

Instead of hanging up the binoculars after the Biggest Week and IMBD, join TNA in our, annual fun birding big day event. The friendly competition is for birders of all skill levels and will again cover Lucas, Ottawa, Wood, Sandusky, and Erie Counties. Planning a route is half the fun, and places like the Oak Openings, Magee Marsh, Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, and Pickerel Creek are among the very best birding locations in the entire state. Start at 7:00 p.m. Friday evening, or start at whenever you want with 2 or 3 of your best birding buddies and beat the bushes until 7:00 p.m. Saturday, finding and identifying (by sight or sound) as many bird species as you can. Those less competitive birders can still enjoy the fun by entering a team in the Freestyle Division. All interested parties are welcome to join the teams at the official countdown at Tony Packo‚Äôs (1902 Front Street) at 7:00 p.m.

Please see complete rules and registration form at" rel="nofollow - .

When: May 18, 7:00 pm through May 19, 7:00 pm

Late Neotropical Migrants - field trip

Warblers should still be quite common, and some of the later migrants will be targeted. Yellow-bellied Flycatcher and cuckoos can be expected, and perhaps an Olive-sided Flycatcher will put in an appearance. A check of the beach should produce Ruddy Turnstones and Sanderlings and maybe even a Red Knot. Meet trip leader Rick Nirschl at the west entrance of the boardwalk at Magee Marsh at 8:00 am. The field trip will run until 12:00 pm, but we encourage you to explore the boardwalk afterwards.

When: Sunday, May 20, 8:00 am

Where: Magee Marsh boardwalk, west entrance
