5 ducks in the water on this side of the road
Busy, Busy road. They patiently waited for all the cars to pass and then crossed.
We have a straggler, any food? Nope, back in the water.
I talk to them, they wag their tail feathers. I tsk them, they are waiting to cross, so I watch and see if I have to jump out and slow down the cars. Nope, as busy as it was, there was a break in traffic and off they went. I don't know if it's hearing, the feel of the ground or seeing the cars whiz by. But then absolutely knew when to cross.
