Bird transit. Station “Winter Harbor”

All birds like to eat and are busy looking for food for most of the day. They fill their tummies up until they can eat no more. And they are very happy to do that! Swans use their long necks to dive deep for food, leaving their tail exposed on the surface. They are trying hard. Ducks can submerge in the water completely, but not for long… A happy drake has already grabbed some seaweed and plankton and is now quite full. Golden-eye finds his food quite deep. Merganser sinks for a long time and reaches the bottom. Bald-coots and cormorants are quite happy with their lunch. They are now taking an afternoon nap.

It seems like nothing is special… It’s always like this here.

The thing is, it’s now… Winter! The lake has to be under the ice and all these birds should be long gone to countries in the south! Why are they all here?
