... did the chickens cross the road?
Why did it take them so long to cross the road?
Obviously, they wanted to slow down traffic, and get to the other side!
The Bag Lady took a load of garbage to the dump the other day, and on her way home, she saw a flock of about 8 or more prairie chickens crossing the road. Fortunately, she was the only one on the road at the time, and she stopped for them. They move slowly and cautiously, for the most part. The Bag Lady was even able to get out of her truck and take a few pictures. (And to be honest, she isn't exactly sure what kind of birds these are - she thinks they are spruce hens, but could be wrong. They are some type of grouse, anyway.)
Hope everyone (in Canada and the US, anyway) is enjoying their long weekend.
