Right that! We have a heated bath & keep adding water from pitcher. A robin watched as I filled it w warm water & was in immediately. Also throwing scratch seed on ground has them all hopping. I can feel them giving me the squint eye when I’m a bit late. They all look like brown tennis balls w feet.

I have a floating livestock trough heater in my water feature. Don’t know how big yours is Jerry, but this morning, after a 10 degree night, my water was free of ice.

Subject: Water !

Since this cold spell started I have continued to keep my water feature flowing and the birds have flocked to it like water in a desert. The supply side line finally froze. Unfortunately, it was on the same electric box line as my two heated bird baths. This morning I had to go out and unplug the pump in order to turn on the heated baths. It will take a while for the Ice to melt but they will soon hopefully find them and have their much needed water. I hope all of you remember that putting out water on these freezing days is as important as seed and suet.
