Winter’s almost gone – almost …
Our ice cap is melting, finally. Studying the new gap in the ice today – saw several small fish – too dark to determine type.
No tadpoles observed. Maybe they hibernated this winter? The last 3 winters we’d observed them all winter long. This was our first winter though, where the pond had such an ice cap, for so long.
Wondering about the tads – where are they?
Saw one dead fish too – and interestingly, don’t think it was a blue. Maybe a perch (had vertical stripes). But we only stocked blues – and some quick research just told me that it was most likely a blue.
