Camera Critters: Poisoning Pigeons in the Park
I'm just kidding. And actually, there will be no pigeons in this post because we didn't see any. But we took some chicoree along to feed the birds, especially the coots who really like it if you make the pieces small enough. The gulls didn't say no either.
They're Black-headed gulls in winter plumage - called Lachmoewe, laughing gull in German, but the American laughing gulls are different birds alltogether (look very similar, though).
The crows didn't like it, but that didn't stop them from watching us closely in case something better would be produced. It's a bit creepy to be busy feeding gulls and then you feel the eyes of about twenty crows on you, standing behind you. Talk about The Birds.
