Ottawa - This shot begs for a caption. A couple that come to mind are 'sushi on the menu tonight' and 'ice fishing is for the birds'. Overwintering Robins were taking advantage of a small pool of open water with an abundant supply of minnows. They were very good at it but I only saw it happen twice. Others have seen it at this location for a few weeks. Protein is in short supply these days and you'd get tired of frozen fruit too.
