    What to Look For

    Secor is located on the other side of Bancroft Road from Irwin Prairie, and protects one of the region's better tracts of Black Swamp forest--a habitat that once covered much of northwest Ohio. A highlight of the forest--dependent species that nest here is Cerulean Warbler; a few pairs breed in the park. More common nesters include Red-headed Woodpecker, Yellow-throated Vireo, Veery and Wood Thrush, and American Redstart, Ovenbird, and Hooded Warbler. Spring and fall migration can be good for songbirds as well.
