Autumn in Amish Country is a Perfect Time for Bird Watching in Ohio

If you like to go bird watching in Ohio you won't want to overlook Amish Country this fall.  People come from all over the world to experience Holmes County Amish Country and fall is the busiest time of the year.  The Wilderness Center in Wilmot has some special programs to help you experience fall: bird walks, Monarch butterfly walks, wilderness walks, and more.  From the Interpretive Building you can sit and watch many birds come up to bird feeders just outside the window. The most unique thing there is that there are microphones outside so that you can hear the bird songs from the inside.  They have 6 nature trails for outdoor bird watching.  Stop at one of our cheese factories to get a picnic to take to The Wilderness Center.  On select dates there are bird hikes to enhance your outdoor experience.  Let your innkeepers at the bed and breakfast where you stay help you plan your dates around when the programs will take place.
