Montage of Blue Birds

In the cold of winter the birds have found our bird bath with the water heated to prevent freezing.  The air is dry and this may save their life this winter.  I did see these bluebirds bathing last month when the temperature was only in the low 40's F!  Even now they will dip their head completely in the water and shake it about!  We have a total of 4 bluebirds that have been visiting our water bar and staying around even though there is no music or colored lights.  Happy New Year!


This bird above is such a stunning blue in the early morning light.

I love your pictures. I have low vision and I just don't see birds much at all. Thanks!

They are beautiful! And a heated birdbath! What a wonderful idea! I have to keep running out in the cold to crack the ice away and put some warm water down. It doesn't last very long around these parts, but the birds appreciate it. :)
