We noticed that there was a dearth of birds this morning, and then I looked at the thermometer . . . just under forty degrees. I guess the birds don’t come out until the temperature is a bit higher. Sure enough, the temp went up, and the birds arrived.
These six sat on the rail just above the water pond for a while. I’m not sure if they were waiting for the signal to drink, or if they are lined up to use the restroom (birdhouse).
They sat there blinking themselves awake for a while, and then they all flew off at the same time without having popped down for a drink of water. They’re busy!
The photo will get really big if you click once, let it load and then click again. But it won’t be any clearer!
