Winter Wonders and Warmth: A Sterling Adventure

Exploring the Avian Winter Wonderland

Winter, a time when birds supposedly migrate for warmer climates, but not in Logan County! Here, over 340 bird species are donning their winter jackets and sticking around. Join us on an undercover journey into the world of winter birdwatching – grab your binoculars, our birder's checklist, and delve into the avian spectacle. Don't forget your backstage pass to the show – the seasonal bird observation bar chart.



Hot Spots to Thaw Out

Warm up amidst the winter chill with delightful spots in Logan County:

  • Coffee at the Carnegie / Old Library Mercantile: Snuggle up with a hot cuppa in the historic ambiance of the Carnegie Library. It's the perfect place to unwind and sip on warmth.

  • Parts and Labor Brewing Co.: Step into history at this century-old Cadillac dealership turned brewery. Savor handcrafted beers and explore a menu beyond the ordinary. Don't overlook the Mom's Not Home Nachos – they're practically legendary!
