Standing near the water's edge, the birds show no fear of humans. They've grown accustomed to the crowds of gawking people who throw scraps of bread or popcorn. I have nothing to give, but several geese approach almost casually, as if to request their next meal for the day. A sparrow shows only slightly more caution as it hops quickly around my feet. After several minutes they realize I offer no food, and so the geese return to their families by the water and the sparrow returns to the trees.
