Bird bath

We had a rainy weekend and there were puddles everywhere. The birds didn't seem to mind the rain in fact they seem to love the puddles. My neighbors driveway had some good size puddles that the birds used for their bathing.

One time I looked out the Robin was enjoying its bath time in the puddle.




The next time I looked out my bluebird couple were out bathing in the same puddle.

                                 The catbird preferred to use our pond as a bath.

Your mosaics are wonderful and I can see you live in a fantastic environment. Lovely photos of the bathing birds today. :)

Lovely photos :) The birds around here seem to prefer using the puddle that forms by the drain across the road than using our stone bird bath!

Beautiful photos. We have a lot of rain these days and plenty of puddles everywhere but don't see any birds :) They seem to prefer our bird bath at the backyard. Your Goldie Girl is such a cutie.

Looks like a lot of activity at your house.It is strange that no matter how many bird baths one has,the birds still like a simple puddle.
Blessings,Ruth

There is not a more enjoyable scene that watching the birds in the bath. The bluebird shots were great.
