Is the Water Warm, Yet?
Eastern Bluebird waiting his turn at the hot tub...
Yesterday, the day began at 14 degrees and stayed low. Lately, temps had been rising easily into the 50's, so I had put the birdbath on a timer so as not to waste energy during the daylight hours.
Yesterday that setting was deemed inadequate, and I was hearing about it. Had to go inactivate the timer. In the meantime, we kept getting these looks. Like the one from this patient little bluebird. Funniest-discontent-award goes to a robin, however, that had come in, with his belly feathers already fluffed out sideways anticipating the hot tub--horribly disappointed to find the ice!
