Last weekend Sara and I stopped in Manning Park on our way to Osoyoos. These Nutcrackers have the public well trained with many groups of tourists providing a diverse buffet for their dining pleasure. This particular Nutcracker only departed when he had completely filled his crop with almonds, even grabbing a last almond in his beak for good measure.
