Polar Bear Plunge

Average morning temperature this week has been 27 degrees.  The bird bath is heated and we still have one or two of those birds that want to take a polar bear plunge.


They arrive nice and early as the sun hits the deck outside my bedroom window.


The sun hits the window and they cannot see we are still in bed watching them!  All they see is their handsome reflection.  "Looking good after that workout."


Bravely, this titmouse takes the plunge.  The water is nicely warmer than the air.



"Now, where did I leave that towel?"

It's amazing what birds have to do to keep their feathers in good condition.
