Splish Splash taking a bath


I took some time the other day to sit indoors and watch what was happening at the bird bath pool. Too hot to be outside.  This pool is outside a bedroom window, so these are taken through glass.   I was amazed at the variety of birds that visited.  Several of them, I hadn’t seen before and don’t recognize.  Haven’t taken the time yet to look them up to ID.  I am thrilled to know that the habitat is supporting so many varieties.

I had seen a male Baltimore Oriole in the top of trees and flying through on three occasions, but was pleased to see a female here as well.  Here they are taking their respective baths.  The male Cardinal followed, then the Starling took its turn as well.

Other birds observed, but not caught on camera were:  Blue Jay, Indigo Bunting, Black Cap chickadee, Sparrows, Catbird, Robin, Goldfinch (male & female) Cedar Waxwing,

Until next time, I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.  Its hot, so stay safe.
