My son Kaleb and I were at the dollar store this morning, and noticed a flock of Canada geese hanging out in the parking lot. Since we had some time to kill before Kaleb's class, he bought a loaf of bread and we fed them for a little while.
Canada geese and eastern gray squirrels have some things in common. They are both wild animals that have adapted well to the presence of humans and their cities, and have even prospered from their proximity to people, but also have still retained most of their "wildness." Unfortunately, many wild animals have not been so fortunate.
