Haha. This is great shot... This guy reminds me of a shorter (length wise) of a goldfinch.
And of course a bird would take a bath on -8 degree weather!

ah ha well spotted CSIRobin ;-) a truck had been sitting with its engine running over the puddle for about an hour and when it moved away, the birds noticed the puddle and took advantage of the opportunity
