Where are the ducks?


We are trying to do a lot of the things that our city has to offer this summer...... trying to do the mostly free ones!

And today we went to the duck pond (at least that is what we call it). It is about 2 minutes from our house. But today when we went we saw only 2 ducks and TONS of geese. The girls had fun, but we come to find out that you shouldn't feed ducks/geese bread. I guess you are supposed to use chicken feed. Guess we will have to do that next time.

Then after feeding the geese we hiked up to where the stream meets the pond and played in the stream water. The pond is not for swimming, fishing only, but that is fine with me because the stream water looks so much more inviting and refreshing.

I am thankful that we had a rain-free day today.

Why shouldn't you feed them bread?

The yeast in bread is bad for them.

We learned that just last year too.
kinda a bummer. Cause I have old bread around on occasion and start to think we can go feed the ducks, then I remember that it is bad for them. :(
