Migration was a bit slow in parks along the Scioto River in Columbus this morning. I started at Scioto Audubon, then visited Berliner, Marble Cliff, and Griggs Dam area, and had only modest flocks of migrants at most of them. Water levels in the river were high from yesterday's rain, so shorebirds and gulls were almost nil. Best other finds were:
Great Egrets - still 4 hanging around Scioto Audubon's bay Turkey Vultures - small #s all along the river, topped by 16-20 around Griggs Dam ChimneySwifts - small flocks were over the river at several spots E.Phoebes - 4 at Scioto Audubon was an unusually high #; another 2 were below Griggs Dam Vireo - 1 Warbling was still in the riparian stip along the bike path at Scioto Audubon Swallows - still had 4 Rough-wings feeding over the bay at Scioto Audubon Thrushes - only 1 Swainson's (at Berliner) Warblers - small #s, but did include Tennessee, Magnolia, Redstarts, Ovenbirds, Chestnut-sided, Blackpoll, Bay-breasted (the most common), Wilson's Blackbirds - no Redwings, but had small flocks of grackles at several spots
