We are lucky to be able to hole up in our nice warm houses. The birds, on the other hand, still have to venture out for sustenance.
Even with the wind whipping wildly, the bird feeders have been seeing a steady stream of business, offering an easy source of food.
The birds also stop for a drink at the new local watering hole - the new heated birdbath I just got last month. Even in a blizzard, they still enjoy some water.
Some of the smaller birds have been having a little trouble reaching the water because of the rim of ice, especially the Juncos. I've noticed a couple of them trying to reach the water, then giving up and swallowing some of the snow on the rim instead. When I was out earlier I tried to knock off the ice, but to no avail.

And hopefully by tomorrow morning, the storm will be over.
I hope everyone is staying safe and warm out there!
