Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife


The geese are so smart that they have learned to bump the bird feeder pole and get a shower of tasty seeds to fall to the ground.  Here at the little neighborhood park lake which is a residential lake as well, the waterfowl have all learned to take advantage of certain bird feeders for some extra chow!

I don’t know if the owners know the true reason for the waterfowl crowd being in their yard, but it is a interesting situation to observe.  Poor squirrels may be getting a bad rap!  Ha!  Who can say?  I do know that the Canada Geese, Florida Mottled Ducks, White Ibis, Double Crested Cormorants, and the Egyptian Geese sure love pecking up the bits of bird food scattered around the shoreline backyard!  I took these pictures this last weekend.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger picture.  Enjoy!
