Everywhere there are signs that say “Don’t feed the cranes.”
But cranes can’t read and apparently neither can humans.
A few weeks ago as husband and I walked around the lake at one of my favorite parks we saw many people standing still, hands upright while chickadees flitted. And we were accosted a few times by chickadees expecting something special.
We didn’t have anything to give them, and think it’s wrong anyway. But I have to admit it was fun to watch. This little guy will remember forever the day he had the crane eating out of his hand.
This is part of the five photos, five days challenge that Carol put me up to. Now I have to think about who to nominate to carry on the challenge. Today I nominate the Cowspot Dogs, because they are living in a new place and have lots of places to show us. Here are the rules, loosely speaking: Post a photo (as you can see I’m having a hard time sticking to one photo.) and a story, fiction or non, or maybe even a poem, one a day for five days and each day nominate someone to play along.
