Birds of a feather flock together for Disneyland dishes

Apparently at Hong Kong Disneyland you will find more than just mice (Mickey and Minnie), duck (Donald and Daisy), bears (Winnie the Pooh) and dogs (Goofy and Pluto).

There are also weird-looking wild birds that have been spotted losing their feathers.

We have been informed that wild birds like sparrows have been among the most frequent visitors to the theme park apart from human beings.

But instead of eating what birds should be eating, such as corn, these birds have developed their taste buds and they prefer hot dogs, candies, pop corn, noodles, dim sum ... you name it, they like it.

We have been told that people were spotted feeding these birds in the park. They are the suspects for helping these wild birds to transform their DNA to become more human - at least in terms of diet.

But everything comes at a price. The birds' partial loss of feathers could be the cost for abandoning their dull traditional diet.

Perhaps Hong Kong Disneyland might want to constantly remind its visitors that no real animals live in its park. Mickey and his mates are characters who will never ask you for food, only for cash at the souvenir shop.

Disneyland said there were a number of signs reminding visitors not to feed birds and that it had received no reports of sick birds.
