"The Biggest Week” is a 10-day birding festival along the shores of Lake Erie. Thousands of migrating warblers stop over in Northern Ohio to rest in the marshes before crossing Lake Erie. Our presenter Mark Stephenson and his son Lucas viewed and photographed nearly 200 species of eastern warblers during this festival. Come and hear about this spectacular event and view their beautiful photographs.
Mark Stephenson is a graduate in Environmental Studies from Hampshire College, in Amherst, Massachusetts and spent summers developing Bird Surveys at Cornell’s Sapsucker Woods, and leading birding expeditions for Massachusetts’ Audubon Society. Mark is presenting with his 13 year old son who is also an experienced birder. Last year, they photographed 445 species in the state, and took time out to participate in Ohio’s “Biggest Week” Birding Festival.
