January Sun

I saw this pigeon napping in the sun today on a south facing lawn protected from the wind. It was still pretty cold in Brooklyn, about 34 degrees F (that's 1 degree C), but yesterday's snow was melting fast and the little bit of warmth felt good.  
These two robins were part of a winter flock of about a dozen down by the East River, all puffed up and facing south -- soaking up the rays. Click to enlarge. 
And this ring-billed gull stood still on a post. No wind. No snow. Warm sun.  
Manhattan across the river -- undoubtably full, too, of creatures appreciating the warm winter sun.
