Scioto Audubon Park

It was one of those far and few between sunny days in Columbus, Ohio in January.  I took a drive down to the Scioto Audubon Metro Park to see if there was any bird action.  As all three of my readers have probably figured out, I really like to go birding.  I try to get some photos and identify new birds.  Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and again.

This park is actually a rehabbed area.  I am not sure if I can use the term brownfield restoration, but I can remember this being Columbus' impound lot.  I had a car stolen a long time ago and can remember picking it up from here.

Anyway, there is a very nice visitor center as well as a climbing wall, boat launch, dog park, and it connects to the Olentangy Trail, which is part of Greenway Trails.  The visitor center is a warm respite when you get chilled from out door activities and want to maybe catch some birds from the warm side of the glass.
