seagulls scavenging in the transgenic corn stalks
If you have been following my bog since I began in November, you may recall my posts about the neighbour's transgenic corn next door, that was harvested in early winter after a couple of snowfalls (and melts). Very little wildlife has come by to eat the remnants, the geese are feeding elsewhere, but this past few days the field has been full of squawking gulls. They rise and fall together, one giant swarm in the wind over the sea of stubble. I walked in there this morning and it is full of corn husks and kernels.
