Daily Distraction: Get out and see some warblers at Glen Echo Ravine

Mid-May is a great time to spot some migrating beauties

As any good birder knows, spring means migration, which means: warblers!

Finally, after seeing what seems like hundreds of posts about exotic-looking warblers all around Central Ohio, I've started to spot some near my Clintonville home. But if you'd rather get out and see some colorful little migrating birds instead of waiting for them to come to you, the Glen Echo Ravine is a pretty great spot to do so.

On Saturday, May 14, at 8 a.m., John Finn will lead expert and novice birders alike on a walk through Glen Echo (meet at the Fourth Street entrance to the park). At this time of year, you're guaranteed to see some beauties.
