Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says

654 - Copy

The sign says to not feed the birds because it is harmful, yet that is exactly what the visitors to the pond do!  Maybe it is a literacy issue and not a stupidity issue.

    A Great sign that goes unheeded except for the really caring people who will make it a point to know what it says.

    • It is also amazing to watch parents let their toddlers feed the ducks and geese. They can be nasty sometimes (wel,, not the kids!). People haven’t been taught, I guess.

    That must be a problem everywhere.

    It is just that people think that signs like that are for other pole to pay attention to not them surely.

    • In this place, at least, it has been done for so long, the signs are invisible. Hubby’s grandparents, who are now both dead, used to come here to feed the ducks. Tradition doesn’t read signs.

  4. I am sure you are correct!!!

    Or maybe its the vampire birds with the blood red eyes hypnotizing the people into feeding them!
    Why is it harmful to feed them? Because of the type of food. We don’t have signs to not feed birds here and we always take bread crusts to feed the ducks. Should we not?

    • If good seed was used that would not be bad, but mot bring white bread which is not healthy for them or us, for that matter. Then there is the issue of dependence. They get dependent on humans for their food and don’t normally fear them as they should for those untamed.

    If this pond has Canada Geese, then the sign should read – “If you feed the ducks and geese, they will thank you by staying year round and pooping all over the park. Do you really want that?”

  7. hahaha, what to do? people love to interact with anything that moves and is part of nature. and is not as judgmental as humans, whehe. 😉

I would love to hear from you!
