Shells from Lake Erie - crow - 04-16-2009

Hi everyone.  I am from Canada and recently bought a place by Lake Erie, so I've been enjoying the beach and finding shells.  Mostly they are freshwater mussels etc but I have two I cannot identify.

Sorry the pic is not the best my camera isn't very good.  They are both small-the one on the left is fingernail sized.

Thank you  <img src="images/smiley/smile.gif" alt="" border="0" />

Thanks for doing that Paul!

I'm the same-not much knowledge of freshwater used to collect saltwater shells as a child and have books on those.  I guess freshwater is not so popular there is not much on the net about them.

Have a great day happy shelling!

Hi,

Yes the picture is not very clear.  I'm not very knowledgeable about fresh water shells anyway, but hopefully someone here is.  I couldn't open the picture by the usual route, but managed to get it open in a roundabout way.  I took the liberty of reposting it in a different format, for anyone else who might not be able to open it above.  Here it is:
