Looking for Warmth

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 19 November 2014 in Animal & Insect.

Today it didn't get much higher than 32 degrees (F) and there was a brisk wind all day. As I was getting in my car, I saw these little birds sitting under the shopping carts in the sun, trying to stay warm.

Life is sometimes a hard thing. Fortunately, there are birds that make it a little better.
