This poor guy was probably dropped by the eagle (see other observation same date) who fumbled it in a tree along our stretch of creek. Note the yellow stripe and line of spots.
The northern stretch of the Rocky River is full of gizzard shad right now. Plenty swimming in large schools and plenty dead/dying. Seagulls and other birds are feasting on the dead.
