No, I don't have anything for you! by milaniet

No, I don't have anything for you!

People used to bring bread to feed the geese - that is now strongly discouraged as they are definitely too tame, not the least intimidated by people, and way too prolific! We were that close.
People ruin wildlife. :( They are meant to be wild!! All those hand outs takes their fear away and brings them too close . Now I can climb off my soap box to say...lovely lovely closeup!

I am surprised that it didn't hiss, but maybe now that breeding season is over they are more cooperative. I agree with you about the feeding. In our area the seagulls come right up to your blanket looking for the crusts of your sandwiches or whatever else they can scrounge!

Great close up. I agree with you on the feeding of the birds...

Great close up.
i don't think it's too well known, but bread is actually not very good for birds ; it swells up in their crops. there's one school of thought that reckons it's responsible for a nasty feather malformation, called Angel Wing, in geese.
