There is a National Wildlife Refuge here, where they actually encourage
feeding the birds. I thought doing so as frowned upon in most parks.

In South Carolina, they don't want you feeding the gators. They also want
you to keep your poodle on a leash (so as to not feed the gators).

It's not a good idea for gators, bears, and other predators to associate
people with food.

It's not a great idea to feed birds, as they become dependent on people
for food. However, at Morton they have already become dependent on
people to feed them. Some of the wild birds there have become so
accustomed to people that they will literally eat out of your hand.
