Note: Use of the cool iphone bird call apps to attract birds are really frowned upon, so leave them in your pocket. There is a sign posted asking refrain from use. They tend to confuse and anger the birders.
Camping and lodging is available at numerous locations. We camped at Maumee Bay State Park where we enjoyed courtship displays of woodcock singing and performing their wonderful skydance right outside the camper!
At Ottawa NWR, behind the Visitor's Center, around the water and to the right (before you reach the grassy area), there is a hollow tree on the left with a Great Horned Owl nest with two adorable nestlings to photograph. Check with the staff about the new photography blind that is available to rent for $10.00 per day.
