Bathing Beauty

“Bathing Beauty”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

With all the fine, warm, spring weather we have been having, the birds have certainly been flocking to the bird baths. This little white-throated sparrow was having a grand time in the water.

 

 

This is dear hubby’s photo, not mine, that he generously shared with me so I could show you.

      For us, it is the mockingbirds, Joy. They really go to town in the water.

    Don’t you just love to watch birds as they bathe? They are so exuberant.

    Aw, what a sweetie, Jan! Love watching bathing birds. So do the cats–from safely indoors. 🙂

      This was a sweetie. He/she had just stopped momentarily flipping around when hubby snapped the shutter.

    Awww, what a sweetie! I sure hope you are wrong about the monarchs, that would be sad indeed.

      Robin, it would be sad to lose so many monarchs, but this winter was bad even for Mexico.
