Feed the ducks in Central Park, which is an ideal place to find accord with nature. It's sort of a tradition among the locals.
How to feed ducks in Central Park in New York
Central Park in New York is a special place. Both for the city residents and guests it is an embodiment of harmony and an excellent place to find accord with nature.

You can lie on the emerald-green lawns or walk amidst the majestic trees spreading over the alleys. Besides, you can take part in one of the most popular activities here, such as feeding the ducks on the lake.

This joyful activity is like going back to the world of your childhood, so carefree and happy. After all, a walk in the park would be incomplete without communicating with the nature and treating birds and squirrels to cookies and fruit leftovers.

Watching the duck families, swimming in the pond and chasing after delicious treats, brings lots of pleasant emotions. The ducks seem to pay no attention to you, but the moment you pull out a piece of bread and lift your arm for a throw, a lively quacking starts over the lake. The feathered fellows chase each other not to lose sight of the treat. At last, the most apt bird seizes the catch with its beak, and the next moment all the birds dash again for the new yummies.

Guest02 February 2017This is a terrible thing to encourage! We need to realize our impact on wild animals. Ducks fed bread develop "angel wing" which causes deformity. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angel_wing
