Birdbaths

Filed under: Uncategorized — Brian @ 2:56 pm

I’m working from home today .. right outside my office window is a birdbath and feeder. In the space of three minutes, I had two bluebirds, two robins and a cowbird all stop by for a bath. One right after the other.

They all do it the same way – step into the water, look around, dunk the head, wiggle the body, flutter the wings. Look around. Dunk the head, wiggle the body, flutter the wings. Look around. Repeat until clean or another, larger species arrives.

Update: A pair of goldfinches. Two separate purple finches. Two grackles (ugh, but whatever…). They like fresh water – Jennifer just filled the bath this morning. Gotta put a hose faucet in over there so we can clean it out more often…
