Most of the coastal ponds I visit for ducks are in the middle of residential neighborhoods... prime neighborhoods within sight of the ocean. I always get a laugh at the canada geese, brant, and coot feeding on those perfectly manicured lawns that sit opposite the most productive ponds. Boy it must really piss those people off to have all that goose crap on their grass and sidewalks!
There's a price to pay for that nice water view, I guess.
Nevermind the birders wandering around all the time.
Last week I watched this guy from one these houses patrolling his yard with a stick. Back and forth he walked, waving his big stick along the sidewalk, to keep the geese away.
And I think I have too much time on my hands...
This bit of drivel, btw, is my 1000th post. Hm. Think maybe it's time for me to finally shut up?
