[Mnbird] heated bird bath question

I have a very popular heated bird bath, with many species coming for a drink in the below freezing weather.  This year it is very busy with the large number of robins staying the winter eating hackberries.  I see that the non-native house sparrows and starlings will sometimes bathe in the very cold weather, but not the native ones.  I never see frozen birds after this happens, so does this mean that they survive the bathing?  It seems an odd sight in the very cold weather.
