    [​IMG] I don't blame them for not coming out. Brrrr! Loved the last video! Did they ever come out? I noticed they were snacking on the snow in the last video. Usually, once they get a "taste" of it, they aren't so fearful of it.

    They started walking over the bits we had walked over so they didn't sink!!!

    Smart duckies!!! My Scovies like to eat snow but DO NOT like walking on it at all. They walk on it veeerrry slowly & if possible make short flights over it so they don't have to be on/in it long.
