Black Ducks - a pair were with a flock of mallards along the Olentangy River here. Red-shouldered hawk - 1 adult was hanging around the ravine area Barred Owl - 1 was hiding in a wintercreeper tangle in the ravine BrownCreepers - at least 2 foraging in the ravine Winter Wren - 1 working along the ground in the ravine Golden-cr.Kinglets - 2-3 in the riparian forest along the Olentangy River Red-winged Blackbirds - 2 in the pocket prairie; another 2 as flyovers in the Park of Roses Brown-headed Cowbirds - calling birds in the pocket prairie and the Park of Roses
