    Yeah, that's where the "good and snowy" part comes in -- the pond sits such that we *should* be okay as there is no other fuel that would be within reach of where they will be burning.....alternatively, I may try to pitch it to the fire department as a good practice for a grass fire, lol.

    The other upside of doing it in the winter is that I am a bit of a softie and can't bring myself to destroy them once the birds have arrived and setup nests in the spring........the red-wing blackbirds are here from the first hint of spring to the last possible moment in the fall.
