Bird Bath Fun!

These Tufted Titmice certainly enjoyed the refreshing cool water in my next door neighbor’s bird bath a few days ago.  The weather was quite hot that day and I am sure the birds just really loved dunking and cooling off!  This bird bath is also a popular spot for Crows Bluebirds, Cardinals, Warblers and Carolina Wrens to bathe or drink.  My neighbors work hard to keep cool water in the bird bath and keep it clean.  That’s important for the birds and keeps mosquito larvae from growing.  There actually were three Tufted Titmice bathing but only two were on or in the bath at once.  I took these pictures from my yard on April 11, 2013.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Very nice photos. A bird bath is a great thing to have. Many birds use it that may not come to feeders.

    • Hi Birding Bunch, Yes, I agree. My two nearest neighbors both have bird baths in their front yards. That’s great as it gets hot here (already is). We do have plenty of shady trees here over the bird baths, and that also is a plus. Thanks for your nice comments. Have a wonderful day!

  2. such cuties. glad they have a birdbath to enjoy! (and you, too!)

  3. Nice birdbath and the Titmouse is cute! Great shots! Have a happy weekend!

  4. What a cute bird at the bath! Out back I have an old pot, an old pan and a big tub that holds about 20 gallons (it’s for the deer to drink from but I keep a large rock in it for the birds to use for baths). They actually get more activity than the feeders and it’s surprising the variety of wildlife that uses the water.
