Motorists travelling 64th Avenue, just east of Glover Road, are frequently forced to slow down or stop for wildlife crossing in their path. This time, Jim Orlowski and other folks were stuck in traffic, waiting for a flock of birds to cross the road – the gaggle including a family of geese with a few ducks mixed in. “Wondering why the birds crossed the road?” Orlowski queried. Of course, the answer is simple, he said. To find out what’s on the other side. (Special to Langley Advance Times)
