Photohunters: Empty and Water

In the winter, the birds holler at me until I empty the ice out of the bird baths and give them fresh water.

The shots in this post are from last winter as it's too early to need to empty ice out yet.

Some of the birds peck at the ice blocks that collect when I empty the ice water out of the baths.

i enjoy your bird images a lot, especially the cardinals because we don't have them here, do we?

i'm still thinking what i'll post for the themes.

oh, but we have frost and a little ice in the mornings. Not fun at all. :(

I hope the birds are grateful for your service and reward you with lots of visits and photo opportunities. :)

You take good care of your birds. That cardinal in the first photo looks kinda indignant that his water is frozen!

Happy weekend!

I imagine that after last night our bird bath is full of ice as well - ARGH I had better get busy and empty it out today.

Have a great weekend.

Living in a place that never has snow or ice it never occured to me about the bird bath water becoming ice and needing to be emptied so the birds could drink. Wonderful pictures

Every week I wonder how you will combine the two memes and I'm never disappointed...but I think I love this one the best of all -- ever (so far ;>))..... it sounds as if your winter birds practically knock on the door to let you know they need you! Great pictures.
