Today, while we were out running Christmas-related errands, we took the bread butts with us so that we could stop at the duck pond and feed them to the ducks.
It was warmish and sunny, but the pond was frozen.
All the birds had congregated in the center of the pond where the water was not frozen.
I tossed the bread as close to them as I could to try to get their attention, and fortunately it slid right across the ice to meet the birds. We got the seagulls' attention first, and the ducks joined in later.
It turned out to be fun, even with the ice.
Actually, watching the ducks waddle on the ice was really funny.
