The Bird Who is Practicing to Become a Bat

I'm not sure what this little wren is doing - practicing to become a bat? There certainly isn't any bird seed up in the patio umbrella for him to eat. The bird feeders are a good eight feet away from there.

Hope you had a great Christmas!
Our garden birds sometimes get into precarious poses like this when they're looking for insects.

It's so cold outside, a bit of exercise might warm him/her up ;-)

Dan: We did have a great Christmas and the first white one here in Greensboro in more than 60 years, thanks! I'm not sure about any insects up the umbrella, but who knows. It sure was funny.

Anne: Thanks. I took over 200 on Sunday. Lack of anything else better to do since I was snowed in.

Anyes: Would you believe we're going up to the high 50's from a low on Sunday of 6F?
