Pete Thayer's Favorite Hot Spots:
Cranesville Swamp Preserve

39.54 N   79.49 W
This unusual boreal bog is home to birds and plants that normally are found much farther north. Stay on the boardwalk to protect the plants. Visit in spring and summer.

Green Bottom Wildlife Management Area
38.56 N   82.28 W
South of Glenwood, this marshy area is good for birding at any time of the year. Look for Little Blue Herons, Great Egrets and Great Blue Herons.

Monongahela National Forest
38.19 N   80.13 W
The Cranberry Glades Botanical Area is a good spot to see the birds of the Appalachian mountains. Alder Flycatcher, Mourning and Canada Warblers and Northern Waterthrush may be found. Follow the Highland Scenic Highway  if you have time.
