Robins in the Hot Tub

"when are we going?"

“are we going? should we go? are you going? when shall we go?”

The heated water bowl has been busy with birds arriving for a drink, a quick bath and a little conversation.  These Robins seem to be enjoying this little respite from the cold, although we were surprised to see them.  Traditionally they migrate and we see them again in February, however a few have been sighted staying over for the winter in recent years.

The low temperature just a couple nights prior to their visit was -30 degrees and it stayed cold for an extended period.  We subsequently have had two additional snow storms, high winds and below-zero temperatures on many nights. If the Robins persist, we will have to knit sweaters and boots for them!
