By the lakes and the ocean beaches from Maine to New York. A lot of our water birds — in particular swans and geese — don’t eat a lot of fish. Fishing is mostly left to the gulls, loons, divers, cormorants, fishing eagles (American Eagles and Osprey especially), storks (which we do not have in North America), and some egrets (but not all of them). The other water fowl are mostly plant eaters. They may eat a few small fish along the way, but mostly, they love the roots of water lilies and other plants that grow around our waterways. And, of course, they will happily eat anything we decide to toss them.
