It is amazing how a bit of water can make an area so attractive. This is a scene you see often when walking across the new board walk along the Chattahoochee River in Roswell. The wild life is always around in this marshy area that borders the river and separates the roadway from the main waterway. Birds like these geese feed here and seem to be pretty much at ease with all the human activity nearby.
It is sad however, that there have to be signs all over this area to tell people not to feed the animals. During the summer you often see people with their kids out giving bread to the ducks and geese. Of course, this makes them dependent on humans and causes incidents where wild animals react the way they are meant to which scares people who interact with them. Then you have trouble and it is our fault, not theirs. Just remember to enjoy nature from a distance and keep the wild things (and the people) away from harm by not trying to turn them into pets.
