River Herring trapped at the Indian Run Reservoir dam. They need to be manually lifted over. Either an Alewife (A. pseudoharengus) or a Blueback Herring (A. aestivalis). I think it's likely a Blueback, but can't be sure without a close examination.
Dumped by someone in the grass beside a trail.
Major spawing event. Attracted a large number of gulls (32,000 Glaucous-winged, 2,000 Thayer's Gulls and small numbers of other gulls). A lot of Pacific Herring eggs on the beach attached to a variety of species of algae.
