The round goby is a small invasive fish that inhabits the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence and now some of their tributaries - a problem for several decades. Some birds won't eat them and some will. They dominate the ecosystem with their numbers and overwhelm native species by competing for food and eating their eggs. The Starling of the fish world it seems. I say go for it Pied-billed

I had a lot of fun with these guys. There were 10 adults and juveniles and they weren't too far out so the detail was great.
