About Scioto River
The Scioto River is an important north-south migratory path north from the Ohio River. Near the confluence with the Ohio River, it provides an important wintering area for waterfowl due to open water during winter. Bald Eagles winter along the river in high numbers. In fall, large numbers of Cliff Swallows stage in Pickaway County. Throughout fall and spring, there are important flights of migratory land birds. Bald Eagles breed.
