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.

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!

Dominic, I understand about bread. Is there any seed not good for wildlife? Have you seen any research on GMO seeds in bird feeds? I haven't paid any attention, and I assume GMO is as bad for raising seeds as for raising corn for seeds.

I agree Mindy.  That blue is an excellent color.  I like it in flowers also.
