The Camp Perry facility itself includes wooded areas near the Lakeshore that provide important stopover habitat for migratory songbirds. The site also lies directly between the Darby Unit of Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge and the Navarre Marsh, site of Black Swamp Bird Observatory's primary songbird banding research station, where they have banded more than 500,000 songbirds over the last 20+ years. In other words, the site lies deep within one of the most sensitive migration stopover habitats in the Midwest. As well as the following.

- The site’s proximity to an active Bald Eagle nest

- The high number of Bald Eagles that have been documented
using the area

- The site lies deep within a highly sensitive area for migrating
passerines, waterfowl, shorebirds, and raptors

- The site poses high potential for impact on the Federally
Endangered Kirtland's Warbler and Piping Plovers

- The site is part of a National Audubon designated Important
Bird Area

- The site is part of a Partners In Flight designated Globally
Important Bird Area

- The site is part of a Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve
Network designated area of Regional significance for
shorebirds

      I am an advocate of wind energy but also aware of the sensitive nature of responsible placement.

      I am not a conservationist. Just an Ohio citizen who enjoys birding and other wildlife. My boyfriend and I spend thousands every year visiting this area for that reason and also love seeing hundreds of people that I have met through the years. It would be a shame to move our yearly migration vacation to the shores of southeast Texas.
