  1. Those are beautiful shots. Yes, isn’t it strange how little people listen to the message and still bring loaves of stale bread to feed the birds?

  2. I do that too with the six-pack plastic rings. Your cormorant picture is great, and I don’t care if they poop and the grass burns a bit. I’d rather see a cormorant than a pretty green lawn with not a living thing on it. I really like the sign about not feeding the birds bread.

    • That’s wonderful, Anneli, keep cutting those rings. i have bad memories of stepping in goose poop as a kid on the lake but these days I would just run them off. 😂 Is bread any good for humans? People get on about the carbs.

      • Whole grain bread is good for you. If you stay away from sugar, and get a reasonable amount of exercise it shouldn’t hurt to have bread now and then. Moderation is the key (like with everything).

  3. I do love Cormorants, we have so many up here and I like to photograph them but a lot of people don’t like them as they destroy trees and their guano kills the grass.

    • Agreed, thank you for mentioning this, Rebecca. The plastic rings that hold a six-pack of pop together are just as dangerous. I always use sheers to cut the rings so the bird would not be trapped. Humans are hard on the animals. 😩

Your pleasant comment is welcome!
