Monday Morning Wake-Up Call

“When it’s cold you can see the song.”

A blue tit appears to be sending smoke signals as it braves sub-zero temperatures in a park in the city of Petrozavodsk, Russia. Mikhail Kalinin, 34, an electric locomotive engineer spotted the chirping bird’s condensation rising up out from it’s beak with the temperature below -5 degrees celsius.

  9. Oh, goodness, it’s supposed to be a high of -20F on Wednesday where I live! That’s -28.8888C! I’d better alert my bird-watching friends in case their visitors that day put on an amazing show like this little darling! Would their little tufts of breath just freeze right in place? I’m new to your site, and I’m so inspired every morning! Thank you!

Such a darling, photo…I think it was Smithsonian where I read that some mama’s have a substance in their blood that acts as antifreeze does in a car….///white hair grace, Sawsan and any other of you who live in the effect cold box area stay warm!!! Brainerd, MN will be -28 tonight and -35 Wednesday night…brrr, ugh and we must pray for the homeless that they get to a warming center or a shelter…and pray that all domestic pets are properly housed!
