Watery Wednesday

They are hard to make out but we could hear them as we passed by. Little sparrows having a pool party and chirping in their excitement. They were having a great time splashing away in that cool water on such a hot day.
He looks like he is about to dive in doesn't he?



I am calling these two the little gossips.
Bye now, gotta go!
My sparrows were found in the National Garden, Washington DC.

awww they are adorable.
I really like the 6th one where they are chattering in each others faces and the 3rd one where they are all wet and puffy.

Is there anything happier than a bathing bird! So cute! BTW, when you are in Washington check out the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge just south of Tacoma. Lots of good birds there!

These are absolutely gorgeous photos, Denise. I always think of sparrows as rather ubiquitous, but you've given them personality and flair. Love it!
