This is what the wet snow did to the cedars by the deck: The weather has been so hard on these trees over the years, but they give us privacy on the deck and the birds love them. The robin's have been hanging around in them trying to figure out if they should build a nest or not.
I don't know why they can't figure out a place to nest since they have "location, location, location"! What about the "custom" birdbath we have in the yard: The hose in the bottom left corner is connected to the basement sump pump and the drainage melts the snow. When it pumps the robins stand in the water and take baths. Leonard and I crack up just watching them. Such priceless entertainment.
