Do not feed the birds
This is a good reason not to feed the birds. These geese were at the State Fair. However they were not allowed admission because nobody would pay their way. They tried to follow a lot of people in, but the ticket taker said no. The State Troopers were called who in turn called Cheryl, one of our wildlife responders in the valley. She responded to the State Fair. There she found these guys just hanging around waiting to be feed. Seems they are already imprinted. They are not afraid of humans and are probably use to being fed by them. Chances are these guys are going to get placed somewhere where they can be protected and cared for.
Don't feed the wild birds. They can feed themselves. If you feed them, they probably won't migrate like they are suppose to. Every winter we get birds that should of migrated in the clinic with frost bite.
