Water, please?

Photo by BarrytheBirder

It was -5C this morning and the water in the birdbath was a frozen slab, so I boiled a kettle of water and poured it into the birdbath.   Within five minutes, these Blue Jays were filling themselves up and they were followed by several Chipping Sparrows.
Please comment if you wish.

I put out a heated bird bath every winter. The birds love it when all other water is frozen. It becomes crowded at times especially when the snow cover comes.
