Poor little bird, I understand very well. This is why I go out several times a day to melt the ice in the birds bath, so they can drink without bent their beaks.

@JolietJake I found one nice for sale last year, it looks nice in a corner under the carport. This is the favorite spot of the birds (also of the cats, but I keep an eye on them).

Besides that, JJ can microwave his worms, so they're nice and juicy! Or, use his slow-cooker, to simmer them all day in BQ sauce:)

One of my exes used to get mad at me for keeping night crawlers in the refrigerator...I asked if she was afraid they'd crawl in the macaroni

@JolietJake I grew up with a parent who was a biology and parasitology professor. You don't even want to know what I used to find in our fridge.

I guess some of them do stay around all winter, but since they aren't seed-feeders they must have a rough time finding food
