We have quit feeding the waterfowl. Lots of other people do though.
Interesting sign. It makes sense.
What a great sign, Andy!I too wish people would stop giving birds bread that's no better for them than it is for us. The Canada Geese here in the Vacouver area tend to stay and make a nusiance of themselves year round...lol.LynetteImagination Lane
Great post, Andy, and it makes sense. I believe that most people will do the right thing when they understand the consequences.Bises,G
that is a fabulous sign. i'll refrain from bringing my stale bread over the pond to feed the birds and the ducks.
I've often wondered how the practice of giving bread to waterfowl started in the first place?
Wow this is very interesting. People should know this. Signs
I never thought of it before, but It makes sense. I'm not in the habit of feeding them anyway, but apparently many people do. Great sign!
You rarely pass my local park lake without someone with a bag of bread. But then it usually the seagulls rather than swans and mallard that end up with the lion share. The Canada Geese prefer the school sports fields nearby.
Thank you for teaching me. Please have a good Thursday.daily athens
and I have seen people, brazenly standing beside these signs, feeding the geese....
I like the way they've worded the sign so it isn't so demanding as just 'do not feed the birds'. I hope it reaches the silly gooses of the human variety who insist on bring their leftover bread (that happens all the time in places where we visit -- from Oregon to Florida.)
this is an informative sign! and a beautiful photo, too. it's not only birds, people tend to feed zoo animals with junk food. a giraffe at the Manila Zoo almost choked on potato chips! Signs
Makes sense to me. I imagine the nutritional content of modern, store-bought bread is close to zilch. Cannot stand the white, squishy stuff.
Great sign and it explains why not to feed them! Nice capture.
Very educational. I did not know this. Thanks for a great post.
