Ottawa County Parks & Recreation


Welcome to the birding information webpage for Ottawa County Parks! For the casual backyard bird watcher to the most serious of birders, Ottawa County provides a wonderful setting to enjoy these avian wonders. Our hope is that Ottawa County Parks, in particular, can be a means by which you can enjoy birds all the more. From the resources listed on this page and bird-related programs we offer all year long to the variety of natural spaces we provide, our aim is to help you enjoy the wonderful diversity of birds our county has to offer! Please let us know how we’re doing and how we can improve in providing this service. Thank you!
