Subject: [Ohio-birds] New Ohio eBird shared bird reporting hotspots are active
Ohio birders have added several shared bird reporting hotspots to eBird.

Clermont County
Grailville Nature Trails

Fairfield County
Pickerington Ponds--Yellowlegs Trail has been merged into Pickerington
Ponds--East (Fairfield Co.)
Much of Pickerington Ponds is designated as a Nature Preserve where
off-trail travel is prohibited. The Fairfield County section of
Pickerington Ponds is entirely within the Nature Preserve. The Yellowlegs
Trail begins in Franklin County for a short distance and then travels into
Fairfield County. The trail connects with the Killdeer Trail. Most birders
who visit this section of the park use these two trails to visit the
observation deck on Pintail Pond. This is the only trail travel permitted
in this section of the park.
Because the Yellowlegs Trail crossed the county line it was attracting
checklists of birds seen in Franklin County. Birds seen from the Yellowlegs
Trail in Franklin County near the park office and maintenance barn should
be reported to the hotspot Pickerington Ponds--West (Franklin Co.)
To see how the hotspots at Pickerington Ponds Metro Park are organized
please visit:

Jackson County
Cooper Hollow Wildlife Area--Headquarters and Iron Furnace

Lucas County
Maumee Bay SP--Lodge Pond and Beach
