Bird Watching in Ohio...birding in Ohio. . Southern Ohio is home to a rich assortment of habitats from lush forests to thriving meadows and boggy wetlands to open waterways. It is no surprise, then, that birding in this region can be a rewarding experience with all the diverse species of birds to be found. Visitors to the region have caught glimpses of the Bald Eagle, Osprey and the uncommon Cerulean Warbler. On occasion, you might see a Yellow-crowned Night-Heron or Horned Lark.

If you like to hike, Clermont County's East Fork State Park offers as much as 85 miles of trails. If you are looking for aquatic birds, the Birding and Heritage Trail follows the Ohio River for part of its 200 miles. Regardless, along the Birding and Heritage Trail you are bound to find more of a few species to add to your life list of birds.
