I bet you anything those two juice bottles do not belong to those two geese.

This image really hits home the whole 'paved paradise and put up a parking lot' idea. Bad enough we're trying to carve out a living in the desolation of a city of parking lots -- but just look what our wildlife ends up with: a patch of gravelly grass where people have idly thrown their recyclables.

When I was taking this photo, a woman walked by and said, "What a crappy place to build a nest." I wondered if she meant the geese had chosen a stupid place to take a rest. I'd like to think she meant that humans' wastefulness and environmental destruction is leaving little choice for passerby creatures.

Let's be clean when we're not being dirty, friends.
