Hunger Beats Fear

And in this case, fear is totally on the back burner. It is nice to see people interact with wild creatures, even though it's not "natural".

Good capture, Bynx!

When I was a kid living in the country the only wildlife I saw was a dead fox, squirrels and a few small birds. Since then with people not having guns and not able to shoot them if they did all sorts of animals have encroached back on lands taken from them by people. Coyotes, fox, Canada Geese, Mallards and other sorts of birds as well as their predator buddies like Hawks of all sorts and eagles as well. Its nice to see but wonder when it will rebound when they become more of a pest again and the guns come out. Large birds namely Canada geese was almost on brink of extinction 50 years ago. Now they are a plague to the airline industry and every park where they leave their large droppings. For now though, anyone with a bag of seed will have a gathering of fowl around them like this guy and the interaction looks nice.
