Bathing birds – Photo Wednesday

There is a big flat rock in my garden, with a “bowl” in the middle. It’s a natural bird bath.

This nuthatch was waiting for me to top up the pool.

Then came a very rowdy chickadee.

Who was soon joined by two buddies. Raucous peeping, and flapping of wings.

It’s going to get hot over the next few days. Keep the birds in mind: give them a little water to drink and bathe. They’ll even follow you around in the garden, when you have a hose in hand. That’s a hint!
