Why did the Canada Geese cross the road?

Why did the Canada Geese cross the road?

To get to the other side, of course.

I was leaving the gas station the other day when I noticed the traffic had stopped to let these feathered flaneurs cross the road. It took a while — there was another gaggle of ’em right behind this lot, and they weren’t in a hurry — but watching their leisurely amble across four lanes of traffic was a lovely break in the middle of a busy day. Thanks to Younger Daughter’s friend, M, for snapping the photo!

And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming….

    Very cute, thanks for the diversion! Makes me remember my post a while back about Egyptian geese, and how in a sense they are like the Canadian geese when we lived in the US – annoying and unwanted guests messing up the golf courses from a country in the North! (But as your picture shows they are actually very cute…)

    Awww, how cute. And how quintessentially Canadian, with all the drivers politely stopping to let them pass!

  3. Agree with Judy, how quintessentially Canadian! You see photos and tv stories showing various ducks, geese and other birds shepherding their young hither and yon, and it always makes me smile. Thanks
