The Alewives story

The Alewives-

Cindy and I and "Boo" went to the Alewives "fish ladder" (In the Herring family- The lobster's favorite food) recently to see their annual 3 week spring climb to a fresh water lake to spawn. It is in Damasicotta, Maine about 20 miles from us. It is on US 1 about 1/3 of the way up the coast of Maine. Millions of 5 year old Alewives go from the ocean to make this journey each year.


The "ladder"- Full of fresh, cold, oxygen filled, water



The water is churning with Alewives in a resting pool. Some Alewives are harvested during this migration for the lobstermen in this area.


The "boss" and Boo (3 months old) next to a resting pool


Alewives fresh water lake destination to raise new generations of Alewives.
Born in a lake, migrate to the sea till adulthood and then back to The lake to re-generate- What a lovely cycle of nature.


"Osprey" photographers, waiting for the Eagles to dive for these fish to catch the "perfect shot"


The magnificent Osprey Eagle
We have Osprey over the campground almost ever day. The Osprey has the white underside. Note the "high speed" configuration of the Osprey's wings for diving to catch it's prey
i

Have a great summer

Thanks for the pictures. I really enjoy watching birds of prey. I watch a family of hawks, generation after generation they have stayed here on my ranch.

Here is a live feed of Osprey Eagles and their baby (or babies) high atop a perch in New Hampshire.

I'm sure it will be available until the babies can fly off on their own .
