Traffic Stopping Canada Geese

Regent Street in our city has been a source of frustrations this summer  as traffic has been rerouted in that area since early June due to an extension construction project..  On Thursday, while driving on Regent Street, all traffic ahead of us came to a halt.

Attempting to see the
cause of the stopped traffic I scanned ahead between the stopped line of traffic and spied the source of the stoppage ahead walking slowly and calmly across the street in front of the stopped traffic.
My husband, David alerted me to a small group of geese to his left.  Aha!  This was obviously the geese's destination.  A patch of green grass adjacent to the street on the other side.  Methinks that  this venture probably was influenced the  whim that " the grass looks much greener

on the other side"!
As we patiently waited we saw the progress the crossing geese had made when we saw them appear at the front of the traffic line to our left.
Just step up to the curb Goose Buddy and you have reached your destination!      
Yes, They have reached their destination!

And then traffic was moving once again.
When we were leaving the area, we saw a large flock of geese to our right.  This was obviously the source of the crossing geese, where they had come from.  Hopefully they did not all want to cross the street, or maybe those that had crossed earlier may want to return to their original destination. 
Drive safely everyone and keep your eyes on the road watching for walking geese!

Good to see that people are stopping and allowing the geese to cross safely.

Hello, fun series. I have had this happen with the geese walking across the street. They take their time too.

Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!
