Yep, I'm married to a birder and my life has been forever changed. I teach at Mount St. Joseph University, and I band birds at the Clifford Bird Observatory (CBO) and Hueston Woods Biological Station (HWBS) in SW Ohio.
Tuttle Creek State Park in Manhatton, Kansas is a great place to see Bald Eagles and Red-tailed Hawks. There were so many raptors, that we had trouble keeping track of them! This is a beautiful birding spot. Lots of great overlooks of the water, short grass prairie with a smattering of cottonwoods and red cedars along the waterways.
