Unlucky for some...

Thirteen Grey Herons sit it out on the ice waitng for the thaw.

Poor herons :-(

There's a small French town on the Rhine (in Alsace) where around 50 storks gathered last year, deciding to winter here... I guess they couldn't have known this winter was going to be a real one ...

In a nearby lake we saw two great northern divers (loons)! We couldn't believe our eyes - that these polar birds should forget all about north and south, too ... :-)

We have Blue Herons here on the Chesapeake Bay.

I love seeing them, and watching them in flight, and every once in a while watch them feed on fish in the shallow part of the Miles River.

Nice pic.

I wonder if this is something they are not accustomed to. And I wonder if their own survival is in doubt here.

You should offer them a nice, hot, frothy cup of coffee while they wait for the thaw.

I'm sorry, I saw that yummy cuppa joe from a previous post, and I'm fixated on coffee right now. It looked reeeeeealy good!
