Re: Bird watching

I do love looking at pictures of birds, I can be objective sometimes. The advice to go and feed some though is not going to be taken by me. When we first moved to Zug, I took the girl to feed the ducks. I am sure that my shrieking was heard in Bern. The ducks were fine, just being a bit ducky and paddling around in the water, the swans were a different matter. They are really tall and aggressive (maybe Zug has mutant swans). Scared the life out of me.
We were at Zurich lake just before christmas, girly was on her scooter and there was a family of swans. We were admiring the ugly duckling - cygnet when a dog ran by. The mother (or father) was out of the water and onto land in a split second and puffed itself up and started twitching in a very agressive manner. We hot footed it out of there pretty quickly. They are clearly loving, attentive and possesive parents.
