That very cold weekend – songbirds
Switzerland – and most of Europe, I believe – was hit with ice cold weather the weekend of February 4/5. Minus 8°C (17°F) for the days highest temperature is not very common here. But the sun was shining and I couldn’t resist taking a walk 🙂
Look at the Blackbird’s feet, for an impression of the cold:
People were putting food out, so there was sort of a gathering.
And I even saw the bird of 2012 of Switzerland – perfectly matching the weather, a Winter Wren (Zaunkönig)
