Just a nice photo of our flock of Canada geese walking on wet pavement as they headed for higher ground this morning. The creek was high after heavy rainfall and they normally nest on the creek banks, now under water.

Below, they walk in a somewhat orderly fashion between the bank and the creek, but couldn’t cross the street for the traffic.

The geese head out between the bank and the creek.

Mark Cantley and I helped them cross the street—he parked his truck to block traffic from one directly and I stepped out to block it from the other and we both herded the geese across Main Street.
