This sign placed near a pond somewhere in England has caused a lot of guilt among duck lovers. Click to enlarge so you can read what it says.
Something we've heard over the years because of the ducks which come to the campus each spring to have their babies, is that bread is bad for ducks. The sign lays out the issue pretty good. But so many of us don't realize this and truth be told, those scores of ducks who make their home at the Forest Park Boathouse seem capable of digesting anything. So many people feed them all day and night from their plates things like-nachos, fries, hamburger buns, whatever, that you wonder how much worse bread could be. It is though.
The story gives a pretty good list of things you can feed ducks. Half cut seedless grapes, cooked rice, birdseed (now that's an idea!), peas, corn, oats.
