Staff Pick: Waterfowl Watch
Waterfowl are among the most interesting birds to watch - especially for those who couldn't tell a warbler from a woodpecker. Most ducks and geese are fairly large, have decently distinct markings and prefer to float rather than flit.
Many have been heading through Central Ohio during annual autumn migrations, and the wetlands of Pickerington Ponds rank among the region's top viewing spots. During Saturday's Waterfowl Watch, naturalists will help you locate and identify flyers from near and far. Meet at the Glacier Knoll Picnic Area. Binoculars are helpful, though not required.
