While out shelling and birding today on Sanibel island..
We saw this ..
A young boy chasing birds.
Do you think that the little boy should be allowed to chase the birds?
Would you have spoken to him or his parents or just let him be?
The little boy continued to chase the Black Skimmers, Terns and other shorebirds.
The birds took flight..
Jeff wanted to speak to his parent.
I hate to cause problems..and told Jeff not to say anything.
I felt that most likely the parent wouldn’t care about the birds and would let the child continue to chase the birds.
Jeff decided to speak to the father…He asked the father if he knew why dogs were only allowed leashed on the beach. He told him it was to keep them from disturbing the wildlife. He explained that the birds were trying to rest and that many of them were on resting up before migrating north.
The father seemed agreeable.
Father and boy continued to walk down the beach..
Little boy continued to chase the birds.
What do you think about this situation?
What would you have done?
