As the ice thaws on ponds around here you will often see a lot of gull activity. Maybe with a few eagles mixed in. They are all very interested in the fish that are being exposed as the melting progresses. On this day, there may have been several thousand gulls…and when you get that many together at one time, there are sure to be some tussles and tug-of-wars. And to the victor goes the spoils of not-so-fresh fish.
