Dominic is right about the bread. However, I see people at the parks feeding birds all sorts of things like chips and bread.

Melinda I love the bird and computer pic. Mindy is a cute name for you.

Yes, Spud - tell others not to feed birds junk food.

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 14, 2013 at 7:18pm

I'm glad to know we shouldn't feed bread to ducks, geese, and swans. I'll remember that and inform others when appropriate.

Angel Wing or Slipped Wing

I have not heard of this condition. Interesting deformity, and terrible for wild birds who do not have protection. Do you plan to keep them as a permanent resident, or are there places, such as families or parks who want non-flying geese? 

My neighbor across the street has a duck, she makes diapers for her, and lets her in the house. She loves my back yard because I have so many things she likes to eat ... especially likes to sit on the Wooly Thyme. I keep a tin bushel basket with fresh water for her and she likes to climbs in. Her name is "Fritz" ... don't ask me why!
