While taking my granddaughter around the zoo the other day, I had fun watching all the wild birds. Wild birds in large numbers hang out at the zoos since the food is so abundant...seeds and fruit leftover from cages, dropped french fries from the kids, and garbage cans full of interesting foods. The birds are not intimidated by humans, I am guessing we are just more zoo residents to them. I wasn't able to take the dozens of interesting behavioral photos that I would have liked to take, since my granddaughter required much of my attention. But I did get the interaction below from a baby bird (no longer a baby!) begging for food and a mama bird telling him to fly off alright already!! The zoo if full of food all along the sidewalks, so this fledgling was being super lazy.
