The death toll rises – dam thawing

 

The sun is shining today! In the course of the last week the snow has disappeared and the ice in our dam is starting to break up.

 

So today, I went out with my broom and was sweeping away the bird seed debris that has collected on the patio when I spy with my little eye…

– a dead fish.

YUCK!

We have lots of cats and birds in the neighborhood so it’s not hard to imagine how this little fellow got on the patio, but what was he doing in the dam?

The dam was supposed to be uninhabited – damn that groggy dam!

If only we had known about the all the little fish swimming in the dam, we could have saved them from their icy deaths.

So far, Mom, Dad and 10 baby fish are found floating just below the thin ice.
