It’s Spring, and the Waterfowl Have Taken to the Streets

Why did the geese walk across the road? Because the goslings were too little to fly.

All over Silicon Valley, ducks, geese and other water fowl are getting their little ones out and about.  Some of the time, though, it’s not to the skies, but to the roads.  This is happening especially near creeks, ponds or lakes and the percolation ponds.   Please drive carefully!

What is funny about the photo above is that off to the left side, you can see a yellow advisory road sign.  The warning was to alert drivers that ducks and water birds cross the street in this area.  Yup.
