First comes The Crows:
They mean business and they do not appreciate to be disturbed. They pick the best and biggest bits of food and will not share.
Our of respect (or fear) the rest will wait.
Then we have The Gulls:
They are fast and furious and attack in gangs. Sure they will wait for Crows to finish, but they will be the first ones to pick up whatever is left. And they leave nothing behind!
Lastly The Ducks:
Cheerful little guys. They will always stay around, watch, mock and laugh. But they will keep their distance from all the drama and food fights. They know they will always get something, so they do not worry.
They will stay in groups and hang out on the shore with their kind too.
I was shooting those from a small bridge in the park. They knew I have no food so there was zero interest from their side.
On a side note: remember not to feed ducks or swans with bread. I bet most of us did that at some point, and sure they will eat it. But it is not good for them.
And here is a little bonus :)
As I was watching the crows there was thig cute dog sniffing around. The ducks didn't care... they were in the water and the dog wasn't going into the freezing cold pond. The land birds did get scared though fling up and sitting down few meres away only to come back to the same spot as soon as the dog move away a bit.
