Thank you. These birds are wild yet because they have learned people gve them food, they are now a pest and very destructive. They have little or no fear of people and will come too close for comfort at times. They are cheeky and inquisitive and up in the ski fields they are known to remove the rubbers from around windows, let down tyres playing with the valves etc. I was a bit nervous about leaving the car near them. There were about 8 of them in the area we were parked but they were busy trying to get food that had been run over and packed into the road surface.
