Bluegill Fish (Lepomis macrochirus)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Bluegill Fish (Lepomis macrochirus)

A member of the Sunfish family. These may actually be a hybrid since I also have largemouth bass which may “form hybrid fish by spawning with the smallmouth bass, rock bass, bluegill, warmouth, and black crappie.” (source FL Museum of Natural History)
