Low Water on the Rock River

Low Water on the Rock River photos

There was a few pelicans feeding at the upper dam so I was taking photos trying to see what they were eating and apparently they are feeding on the minnows that game fish rely on. This photo may not represnt what’s going on fully, Pelicans can eat about 5 pounds of fish a day or more. Multiply that times about 50 birds and you have 250 pounds of minnows a day not counting the Cormorant and Seagulls.

What’s wrong with this picture?
