When You Really Need A Drink...

After a chilly night that left a light layer of frost on most surfaces I watched as this mockingbird demonstrated a clever way to obtain a drink of water...


As the morning warmed, and the frost began to melt, droplets formed on the bottom of the power line.  They did not go unnoticed by the bird...


 
 
By placing it's beak against the power line it was able to direct the water into it's mouth...
 

 
 
 
There is always something new to see and learn in nature.
Thanks for stopping by, come back soon.
