Sushi, anyone?

I’ve already documented some of the wildlife we’ve seen in our yard. Recently, we had a “drop in” visitor.

It’s winter. So, we expect geese, an occasional heron, but not much more... it’s too cold. The other day, we were checking out the frozen pond and we came upon an eel. It was about four feet away from the pond and covered in leaves. It didn’t come from the pond (or so we think/hope). Our best guess is that a heron or some other bird dropped the eel as it flew. He must have been a fighter… we gave him a burial at sea.
