PIC OF THE WEEK: 02/16/15 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2015 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes: With the six to eight inches of fresh snow coating the landscape, it seemed like an appropriate time to share this image. Our first significant snowfall of the winter has amplified the activity at the birdbath. Ever since the heater was added years ago, there has been a remarkable increase in its utilization, especially on subzero temperature or snowy days. This mini-water feature may be providing the only "liquid" water around, since the rest is frozen solid. Major adjustments have to be taken into account when photographing this sort of scene, since the abundant reflection of light on the white snow tends to fool the camera's sensor. To compensate for this condition, the shutter speed will typically needs to be compensated for, slowing it down nearly two full stops. This will bring the photo to point a near-overexposure, thus allowing the relatively darker subject to have the much needed additional lightening.

THE BIRD SPA

The Birdbath Alternative • DIY Installation Instructions and Parts List

Birds, like all other animals, prefer habitats that meet all their basic survival needs: food, shelter and WATER! They depend on water to condition their feathers for flight, to help maintain their body temperature, for hydration, and for hygiene. A landscape with a consistent, clean running water source will attract both a greater number of species and a higher count of birds. This especially applies to the many migratory and insect-eating species too. The Bird Spa is a low maintenance water feature, designed specifically for birds. Has ATTRACTED 80 DIFFERENT SPECIES at a single location in central Virginia!
