Today’s Bluebird blog post is part 2 of the “Birdbath Stories”. I took these pictures of the charming Bluebird taking its bath yesterday afternoon at around 5:00PM. If the birdbath looks familiar, it is the same one where I recently photographed a Robin taking its bath (Part 1 of the Birdbath Stories previously posted). This birdbath is on the front lawn of one of my neighbors and boy, is it popular with the birds here! Birds need to bathe. They love shallow birdbaths that are clean and have a lip where the bird can perch or hold on with its feet. Most birds will dip multiple times and then extend their wing feathers and shake off the excess water. Birds also tend to grab a quick drink from the bath. It is important for people to clean their birdbaths and to keep the bath with fresh water. The birds really appreciate these luxuries! Part 3 of the “Birdbath Stories” will be posted here soon. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photo. Enjoy!
