It's been well below zero here for more than a week and I noticed a group of starlings staying very close to the horses. I'm not sure, but I swear they use the horses breath to get warm when their heads are down feeding. lol They are always trying to land on them as well. Anyway, these were taken out our window a little while ago & I thought I would share them. :)

Interesting shots - the starlings are hungry I think and probably waiting for a bug to hop out disturbed by the horses. It's Christmas - throw out some food for the poor birds!!

Wouldn't surprise me if they were standing in front of the heater to get warm. sure looks like that's what they're doing. :)
