The birds are enjoying (NOT!) a new holiday tradition — snow cones. We have a heated bird watering station on the deck, and the birds are usually all over it in the winter, when streams and ponds are frozen over. Not so today. The birds hover over it, but can’t get to the water.
It will probably sort itself out overnight. We’ve seen this before. I often toss a shovel or two into the water after a snow, and it typically melts within a day.
