1st Annual Stark County Bird Quest 

Friday September 15th @ 4pm – Saturday, September 16th @ 4pm

Share the day with family, friends, co-workers and classmates! Explore Stark County from corner to corner in search of birds!
Find the most warblers, visit the most habitats, or check off the most species overall! Have Fun! Enjoy a day of exploring the county and its amazing bird diversity! 

The Stark County Bird Quest is a 24-hour challenge with two goals in mind: 1.) get people into the outdoors using birds as a catalyst, and 2.) to accumulate data about birds in Stark County by submitting observations to This family-friendly event is free including introductory workshops, information on where to go birding, guided walks during the event, and the celebration at the end.

Teams can be as few as two people and as many as you want (rules will be provided for birding together – teams are not permitted to “divide and conquer”). Team names are encouraged and can be funny or serious, but creativity is rewarded!

Because teams can be comprised of beginners and life-long birders, we will offer awards (certificates suitable for framing) for things like “Most Species Reported”, Most Warblers Reported”, “Most Habitats Visited”, “Most Parks/Preserves Visited”, “Most Creative Team Name”, and so on.

And a celebration at the end of the 24-hour event will be our way of bringing teams together for fellowship and a recap of the previous 24 hours. The 2023 Bird Quest gathering will take place at Fry Family Park (2533 Farber St. SE, Magnolia, OH 44643) beginning at 4pm on Saturday, September 16.
