I frequently go to Gravelly Point to watch planes at Washington National Airport. Lately, I've observed National Park Service employees feeding the seagulls at that park. Is this illegal and dangerous to the planes landing and taking off at DCA?
These are the NPS employees who collect trash from the parking area. They drive up in a Ford F-150 pickup truck with NPS logo and US Gov't license plates. As they remove the full bags of trash, they toss some of it to the seagulls. (to the delight of the birds, of course) Sometimes that attract as many as 60 to 80 seagulls! (plus some pigeons and small birds)
