What is International Migratory Bird Day?
IMBD is an annual event created by Partners in Flight (PIF). Partners in Flight is a coalition of federal and state agencies, bird clubs, non-governmental organizations, corporations, and individuals, whose mission is to conserve migratory birds. One way to achieve this mission is by increasing public awareness of the factors that may contribute to declines in bird populations.
Saturday May 10, 2008 will be the sixteenth annual “International Migratory Bird Day”.

A partial albino Black-throated Blue Warbler was observed on May 7, 8, and 9, 2008 at the Magee Marsh Wildlife Area boardwalk. I watched it for a few minutes at about 1:30 p.m. on May 9. I saw at least two photographers snapping photos of the bird, but I'm unaware of any photos being posted on the Internet. It was a fascinating bird to watch.

The American Robins in the photo were near the nature center at Maumee Bay State Park in late January 2007. Because December 2006 and January 2007 had little snow, robins were easily found around the Toledo area. Once the snow and cold came in February 2007, the robins retreated to more forested areas.
(my Oct 2007 post about a spot that where I've spent many hours running and birdwatching.)
Island View Park is a hidden treasure in the City of Rossford. The park is located on (Rt. 65) Dixie Highway just past Lime City Rd. on the right hand side of the highway. The park sets on the Maumee River and is equipped with a 1.1 mile jogging / walking / exercise course. Evenly divided throughout the course are 16 exercise stations for individuals wanting a more challenging workout. The natural atmosphere of Island View Park allows you to enjoy your workout or just relax on a bench.1 The park is mostly woodlands except for one small, open grassy/brushy area.
