Pics Of The Day #946

In all the years she has lived on Sherwood Mill Pond, Kendall Gardiner says she has never seen a fish surge like this morning’s.

“They were on all sides of the dock” she reports. “Just amazing.”

It was a great day to be a fisherman.

Or a bird.

  2. Hard to tell from picture, but it’s very likely young-of-year bunker (menhaden). They’re on every predators menu- fish, bird, and mammal. They’ll likely leave soon to start their migration cycle. Happens most years in the Mill pond.
