Gorgeous, trying to clean his feathers, proberbly could nt find water to clean the dirt of his wings as if they are dirty they cannot fly.

Never seen snow bathing deida, great pic:-) I was amazed when it was freezing to see a blackbird in the bird bath after I had poured boiling water on to melt the ice so they could drink. By the time he went it it must have been so cold brrrr, I wonder how they heat up again?:-)

No,Deida...a first here too.Great photo...looks to be having fun in the snow !!

Ther's no way he's Scandinavian Louise, if he was he would be without feathers and thrashing himself with Birch twigs.

Not seen that Deida, in fact when we had snow my birds were hovering above it unsure about landing on the fluffy stuff!
Great photo, he looks like he's enjoying it!

He'll have to have some snow shoes fitted for the next snowfall.
