Albert as the ice started 5-12-13

Albert as the ice started 5-12-13
What a difference a few days makes. We are back to rock solid icing. Albert was eating steadily. I feel for the animals and birds in weather like this. Right now it is 5F (-15C).

Explored !

Oh, how cold...yes, the animals and birds (and insects) must struggle at times, no matter how well adapted they are. Fine image, Pam, you are a dear to feed them - I am sure all of "yours" will survive.

Find a way to get them some water because it is really needed this time of year, I Have a electrically heated water bowl on the deck and had to fill it twice today because it is the only water available for the critters that isn't frozen solid, I think every squirrel made a drink stop before getting any food this morning and the chickadees have been raiding the hummingbird feeders that I swap out a couple times a day to keep them thawed which made the resident hummingbirds pretty ticked off about birds stealing their food and then me constantly walking off with a feeder.

I always have water here.. always. Its how in deepest drought I built a 40 species of birds list. Then the squirrels.. and the deer/racoons/possums/barn cats from next door/insects... you name it !

I have heated water for them too. But also.... I put hot water out early morning(I have to be up for weather reports to CoCoRaHS) and I put hot out all day in freezing weather.

In drought.. I was the only water for a long long way

Congratulations on Explore, Pam. This is a great shot, if rather frosty. Albert certainly needs that fur coat in those conditions, I hope things warm again soon for you.

Congrats! 'Albert'? How can you tell them apart? Feel for you and that weather ... we have a 'Storm Warning' - like our son told us, "welcome back to NC!"
All our neighborhood utility lines are underground - but, not all parts of town are! So, if we get an ice storm --- just hope it is quick and over with .. prefer snow any day to ice!
Talk to you later <3 ... for my guys`

A beautiful portrait of Albert and I love your green man. Sometimes I despair of the human race but when I think of people all round the world putting out food and water and feeling love and concern for their bird, animal and insect neighbours it lifts my heart. I put out hot water too when it's cold.

Most educational Pam. Until now I thought squirrels hibernated!
3 years ago.
Pam J has replied to Polyrus
Polyrus...

They rarely do . Very few squirrels ot hedgehogs will hibernate unless there is very prolonged and very very cold weather. As long as they can get food they dont need to. Hibernation is risky... its really a near death thing. Often too the rare times they do... if the weather perks up.. they will be about eating. Body fat reserves have to be kept up
