Medford Herring and Bird

Nature, nature walks, Travel

Have you ever been to the Mystic River Watershed?

We visited the herring run there earlier this month. While observing the comorants feeding and sea gulls circling overhead, we were hoping the herring could make it safely to the other side, continuing on their spring journey.

Watching these diving birds, however, was impressive. It’s amazing how voracious their appetites are.  The area is pleasant to visit, and you learn that an important wildlife migration takes place right here in Massachusetts.

You can count herring too, learn more right here.

In the meantime, enjoy the cormorants and sea gulls.
