Hungry Birds

We've been putting lots of feed out for the birds this week.  The fountain in the tiny pond near the feeders was frozen, so I poured some hot water on it to get the water going and melt some of the ice so the birds could get a drink. 
There was heavy traffic at the feeders yesterday and quite a variety of birds.  They are very busy this morning looking for the seed, which is covered by last night's snow, so I'll go out and uncover it and fill the hanging feeder.  I don't know how many hours I spent standing at the window watching them yesterday.  It was impossible to walk by and not stop to look.
