Went down to the Herring Run yesterday afternoon to see if the herring were "running". I ran into the game warden....what a nice guy......and he said it's just a few degrees too cold for them. This weekend might be the best time to see them.
I wasn't the only one looking for the Herring! I saw a Great Egret, two Black Crowned Night Herons, and a few hundred Cormorants and Gulls.
Here are 2 shots of a Black Crowned Night Heron in flight.
And a few Cormorants and an Egret
Hopefully I will have time to return before the Herring are all gone.
