Lots of Water Over The Dam

In the last couple of weeks snow depths have been pretty good for central Ohio. That, coupled with warmer weather and recent heavy rains, means lots of water in local rivers and flowing over the dam on Griggs Reservoir. We decided to take a look.

Along with watching the water we did notice some interesting fungus.

A thistle, looking amazingly good for being buried under snow for most of the winter, made an interesting pattern.

Finally, as if to let us know spring isn’t far away, we noticed this White-throated Sparrow near the dam.
