NRCM member David Small of Old Town, Maine, shares his stunning Maine photos with us weekly. His wildlife and nature photos are incredible.
This week he wrote, “Orland Dam has been a go to spot for me to check up on the alewife run and fishing Ospreys, seals, Double-crested Cormorants and the ever present gulls. Men tending the weir need always to be respected…catching alewives is a big part of their livelihood. A new visitor, in my experience, was the muskrat. I don’t know if it ate any alewives or was just confused trying to get out of the weir. Some of the fishermen said this was not the first time they’d seen a muskrat in the pen. Lots of fun with Maine goings-on!”
