The Tip of the Ice Bird

Temperatures may be plunging into the low teens this week in our neck of the woods…


This is when the rare Ice Bird will sometimes appear on a chilly winter day, clutching a blue icicle.

A small bird identified by its skinny, ice-thin legs, blue tip on the end of its beak and large white eyes.

Legend has it, if you are fortunate to spot one, you will likely live in a warm home and never be without electricity for five consecutive days…

Happy Hunting! β„οΈπŸ¦β„οΈ

  7. Ahaha, I’ll be looking for that bird! So cute. I love the little wisps at the top of his legs. My gosh it’s early in the winter to already be out of heat that long!

    • We had a major wind storm that caused MAJOR damage – lots of fallen trees on power poles. We have never been without electricity for this long. 😨 Hopefully, tomorrow will be the day! 🌟🌟🌟

  8. Oh, Ive been busy, missed how you suffered a long spell without heating. Brr. My my, you must have been very cold after 5 days without heat. Your sense of humor is amazing. But then, it’s the only way to keep it (anywhere near) fun and manageable, isn’t it? Happy for you that the power came back on. In my place we can always put the stove on for some heat — as it works on gas — but it would still mean we’d only have a warm kitchen. Brrr.

    • Nice to hear from you, Corinne! We had some heat with our gas fireplace in the living room and my hubby purchased a generator on Sat so we had a space heater and some lights. But it was a long 5 days! 😳 So thankful we have heat and electricity again! And yes, it helped to keep my humor! πŸ˜„
