Welcome Back! Next up in “Getting to Know NCCH Properties” is on C St. It is in Sandusky, OH. NCCH does not own the home, we manage it for Erie County Board of Developmental Disabilities (ECBDD). Mike Sadowski is the property manager for this home and the additional NCCH properties in Erie County.
Whenever I read this property, I think of the alphabet. I wondered if Sandusky named 26 streets in a row by a letter in the alphabet and alphabetically. I looked this up and unfortunately, they did not! The only other letter streets they have are A St and F St. In my google search, I noted that the Pipe Creek Wildlife Area is located off F St.
Probably a good spot to see birds! I enjoy birding in my free time. Note: birding is not the same as birdwatching. If you notice birds while traveling, you're a birdwatcher. If you travel to see birds, you're a birder.
Fun fact, Northwest Ohio is home to one of the top 10 birding spots in the US, Magee Marsh. Magee Marsh is world-renowned as one of the best places to view spring migrating songbirds and offers many wonderful trails that are highly productive birding locations.
“The Biggest Week in American Birding” celebration is typically held in May. It has been cancelled for the second year in a row due to COVID and restrictions that had been in place. Disappointing for sure, however, I am planning to visit during the peak warbler migration season in May. Here’s a picture of me birding at Magee Marsh a couple of years ago with my aunt and mom.
