Bath Time

With warmer weather upon us, even if for a short time, it was time to get the sprinkler pump back in operating mode.  Hubby went out and primed it again and then turned it on to run for a while.  You should have seen the birds' reaction to it!!!   

I had two pot saucers sitting on the back patio from where my plants had been removed due to the cold weather.  There was already a bit of water in one of them and as the sprinkler kept hitting it, it soon became a most popular bathing spot!! 

Hey, who knew chipping sparrows could twist so well??

And this little guy just had to get his chest into it!

The little guys weren't alone.  There were a couple of mourning doves and one cardinal that joined them.

To see such simply joy was a real delight.  

Y'all take care.

  1. I miss the cardinals. I moved from Sarasota county to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2000. The cardinals occupy other land areas than here. Bummer.
