Crane Creek State Park
                 Bird Watching Capital of Ohio
Located on the scenic shore of Lake Erie, Crane Creek State Park offers a vast freshwater marsh and spacious sandy beach for your enjoyment. This coastal environment is home to more than 300 species of birds. Herons, waterfowl, warblers, gulls and the magnificent bald eagle make this park one of the best birdwatching areas in the country.
The bird population grows enormously during spring migration as migrants take refuge in the marsh region and rest for a time before winging northward across Lake Erie into Canada.
Known as one of the premier birdwatching areas in the country, it is not uncommon to observe more than one hundred species in a day's time.
