Found dead by one of the people with whom I was surveying Sand Dollar Beach
This was the day the fish elevator at this dam was being prepared for a period of non-use until the winter. They ran it this one last time to test some equipment and I was able to see their catch before they dumped them back into the Susquehanna below.
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.

Herring run in the sf bay. The only time one sees them is as they are being plucked out by gulls or men. Shoreline areas between piers at least either side of the bay bridge have their fill of both gulls and boats. With sea lions plying the waters as well, though not in great numbers.
