Especially for birds . . . never knowing quite where their next meal will come from . . . trying to stay warm in the harsh weather . . . looking for water to drink when everything is frozen over . . . and shelter during the storms.
Our backyard feeder is full and there's plenty of suet for those who need it. We also have the bird bath heater running, which is highly appreciated.
If you live in New England than you know today (Saturday) is one of those days that chill you to the bone. When I took these pictures this morning my exterior thermometer in my SUV said 23 degrees. My hands felt every degree of it.
Surprisingly the birds never seem too affected. They are far hardier than me on this cold morning.
These bunch of nuts were even taking baths! But what else is there to do at 7:30 am when it's 23 degrees outside? I think the guy on the left is smirking. Or winking.
