Bluegill Nests

Visiting my hometown for Independence Day but unable to visit my friends, I spent some time doing the daily activities of my childhood. One of my favorites was checking the number of fish spawning in the shallows where I used to splash and play with my brothers.

It’s been many years since the swimming area was so full of nests. Sharp-eyed readers may notice empty shells of the invasive apple snail.  Some catastrophic event seems to have killed them, which might be a reason for the fish’s return.
