Variation on a Theme: Birdbath Saturday!

 To bathe or not to bathe...
 Come on in, the water's fine!
 Cold! Cold! Cold!
 Wimp...
 I can't believe you talked me into that!
I feel...refreshed!

This made me laugh out loud - silly birds!

One of my favorite things in ALL the world! Birds taking a bath. I think my birds must be very dirty birds because I can't seem to tempt them into bathing.

Thank you for letting me live vicariously through your lens!!!

My pleasure, Kim! Your birds probably have more options than ours. We have been very dry this summer and fall, so they really need the bath. It's amazing how many frequent it, mostly finches and sparrows, but also doves and a few blackbirds. And I have seen the odd blue jay and even a squirrel investigating it! I swab it out and refill it almost every day. They love it, and I love seeing them, so there you go. I usually photograph through the back door, as they are less shy with it closed.

Loved your birdbath shots and commentary. I could watch birds all day (sometimes I do, come to think of it).
