Waterfowl were on the move south of Columbus this morning, though there was limited open water to greet them. I checked Berliner & Scioto Grove Parks, as well as quite a few quarry lakes, and found flocks of geese and small groups of diving ducks and mergansers in many open water areas. Most of the open water was on the high-and-fast Scioto River, and Berliner park had nice flocks of Redhead, Lesser Scaup, Ring-necked Ducks, Common Goldeneye,, Hooded & Common Mergansers, as well as a steady stream of Ring-billed Gulls. Scioto Grove was partly flooded, so you couldn't get down to the river in many places there, but the nearby Shadeville Quarry had a bit of open water and more diving ducks. Most of the other quarries, including ones on Haul Rd and Lockbourne Rd, were frozen over.
