Why did the peacock cross the road?

May 11, 2009

On Friday night I was on my way out to grab a drink in Los Feliz with friends. I was running late, so I decided to get on the freeway at Orange Grove instead of Fair Oaks, since that is always busy. Unfortunately, the traffic was even worse once I got near the Orange Grove freeway entrance. It took a while to figure out what was going on. Eventually I saw this:

Three peacocks were walking down the sidewalk, and they were not at all good at following pedestrian laws. Apparently they feel they have the right of way. To everyone’s credit, the drivers were all so confused that they were very careful. Thankfully the traffic slowed down so much that I was able to take some pictures. So thanks, Pasadena, for being so cautious around our feathered friends.

Make way for peacocks!

Make way for peacocks!

  1. Taking on Friday nite get outta Dodge traffic just to grab a drink with a couple of friends seems extreme nowadays. Hope the drink was great.
