Birding in the Ohio Valley

A backyard feeder will attract a variety of birds, in all sizes.

Scarlet Tanagers, Pileated Woodpeckers, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, Indigo Buntings. Beautiful birds all, and all spotted recently in parks and neighborhoods in our area, along with the more common Cardinals, Goldfinches, Juncos and Carolina Wrens. You just have to look, and listen. Cincinnati Nature Center Chief Naturalist & Adult Program Manager Bill Creasey, and Nature Center Visitor Services Coordinator and Naturalist Lester Peyton, are with us with tips and thoughts on birding in the Ohio Valley. Another great source for information is the American Bird Conservancy.
