Taking a Winter Bath

Saturday afternoon’s temperature in the Colvin Run Habitat barely reached freezing, but that did not stop the starlings from taking a bath. From the color of the water after they were done, it was a much needed bath. Click on the photo to get an enlarged photo and see the drops of water.

Why wasn’t the bath water frozen? I may have mentioned previously that earlier in the fall I received a bird bath warmer which keeps the water at just above freezing. Only the starlings take a bath. The other birds and the squirrels just drink the water.
