Someone's thirsty...

While sitting in the sunroom on the computer, I have a great view of our little pond.
Right now it is one of the only water sources for the birds coming into our yard - all the birdbath's had to be either emptied, or they froze.
This morning it was "Robin Central", I lost count as to how many actually stopped by for a drink. 
Waehrend ich im Sonnenzimmer am Computer sitze habe ich den perfekten Ausblick auf unseren kleinen Teich.
Da es im Moment so bitterkalt hier ist, bietet er den Voegeln die einzige Wasserquelle in unserem Garten - die Vogeltraenken mussten entweder geleert werden oder sind zu einem Eisblock gefroren.
Heute morgen kamen ganz viele "Robins" um ihren Durst zu stillen, konnte gar nicht alle zaehlen. :-)

  3. Great pics, Anke! We've been hearing Robins in the mornings off and on for a few weeks now, but Tuesday was the first I had actually seen one! Spring is on its way!
