Why Did the Chickens Cross the Road?

I don't have the answer to that one of life's greatest questions, but I do have evidence that in this instance, the chickens crossed the road in order to visit their friend the horse.

Scroll down to see some more birds.  And hop over to Saturday's Critters and The Bird D'Pot to see even more.

See the river behind the horse? That's the North Fork of the Shenandoah.

Here we see some sweet little birds in my yard followed by a blue jay in Front Royal.  The last picture shows three different kinds of ducks hanging out together. Which brings to mind another one of life's great questions: Why can't we all get along?

It's Earth Day! Show nature some love!


  1. Hello, happy Earth Day! Love the chickens and the horse. The birds and ducks are cute too. Wonderful series of nature photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and new week ahead!

  2. Sweet...oh so sweet. I envy your country living. I really, really do. Scenes like this are not seen every day. I'm jealous.

    Thanks so much for linking in and sharing this with us birders at I'd Rather B Birdin' this weekend. It's much appreciated.

  3. Those animals seem to get on fine together.

  4. Glad the chickens could visit their horse friend.

  5. Oh these are a great series of photographs.
    So good to see the mix of chickens and horses.

    All the best Jan

  6. Great photos, Linda. I enjoyed seeing them all.

  7. I think you answered the chicken question quite beautifully. Now you can work on the second question... wouldn't that be nice if we only all could. Thank you for posting for Earth Day -- I need to try to do that next year.

  8. What a lovely series and: the care of contacts is an important thing...
