Today's photo of the day is of a kid feeding the birds on the national mall in Washington, D.C. There's an interesting story to this, as the kid was actually being taught how to do it right by the guy in the car in the background. The kid's mom said that the man had been showing the kid how to get scores of birds to show up for the last half hour or so (the technique mainly involves throwing bird feed out continuously until the birds start flying away to tell their friends about the free food). Reminded me a lot of the birds that used to be at Trafalgar Square, until London passed a law against feeding the birds. Click to enlarge.
