It's down to a trickle.

The pond is iced over and the stream is down to a trickle but there are still a lot of birds coming in for a drink.
The heated water-bowl will be out later today.
We had jays, goldfinches, sparrows and juncos at the water today.

Junco hyemalis

The Dark-eyed Junco is one of the most common birds in North America and can be found across the continent, from Alaska to Mexico, from California to New York. A recent estimate set the junco’s total population at approximately 630 million individuals

Happy Winter Ric ! Thanks for your added comments
on the photos. I had no idea that Juncos were so common !
--and so widespread--but I did know they were "pretty" little guys !
