Each morning when I make my coffee, I look out the window at the birds. We have several bird feeders and thus are very popular with them this time of year. In addition, we have some thick evergreens which they love to take shelter in.
This morning it was extremely cold -- especially for out part of the world in mid-December. The temp was in the single digits and the windchill made it about 10 below zero. Brrrrr. So the birds were huddled on the ledge of the porch which is south facing and probably radiates at least a little bit of heat on a sunny morning like this morning.
There were *many* visitors today, including one that hopped right up on the ledged of the kitchen window -- gone before I could snap a photo -- who seemed to be watching me make my latte.
