Feeding Frenzy


Well, it’s officially that time of year. No, not THAT time of year. I’m referring to migration time when millions of small fish move along our Gulf Coast. These massive schools of fingerlings attract a lot of attention from larger fish and pescatarian birds.

The larger fish in the area drew in our resident pod of dolphins. During my sunset walk this week I had the good fortune to watch them participate in a team roundup. I counted at least 8 dolphins working the fish into an ever smaller circle:

I also caught some of the pelican action from my favorite perch at John’s Pass:

Don’t worry, I assure you, there are plenty of fish to go around!

  1. My family used to go to FL to visit my parents, every Thanksgiving. When I see some of your posts, I realize how much I miss those days. I always loved Florida, especially when I was escaping the North for a bit!

    Thanks for sharing.
