Bathtime!








Ah, and there lies the rub, he eventually splashed all the water out of the bowl.  No bath for you Mr. Grackle, at least not until the woman staring at us through the window refills the water bowl.   She's scary, we always fly into the trees when she comes out the door.

Wonderful! Your woodpecker is so handsome. Birds can't bathe tidily, can they?

Such cute words Denise, they made me smile this early morning :)
The birds do love to wash away the Winter dust out of their feathers, first come , first served :)

Absolutely brilliant. I love these 'conversations'. I noticed the birds are racing to bathe lately. I've topped up the bird bath three times this week and it's only Monday...lol.
