Robin Takes a Bath

DSC_0801

A Flock of American Robins was feeding on the ground next to the rainfall retention basin across the street from my house.  One of these robins, a bright orange male, was happily bathing in the shallow water of this basin on a sunny warm afternoon on March 1, 2014 when I took these pictures.

This handsome robin was splashing away while its friends were hunting for worms in the lawns of the basin area and at a flower bed next to the basin.  American Robins are to me, such cheerful and busy birds!  I really enjoy seeing and hearing them.  There were about ten of these cuties here.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photo.  Enjoy!

  1. Hi Linda, We are home from a great trip to Arkansas–but today, here at home, we have ICE…. Maybe this will be Ole Man Winter’s LAST HOORAH for us!!! I hope!

    Love your birdie photos. We have a resident Robin (and a resident Mockingbird) who seem to ‘rule’ the feeders!!!!! ha….

    Have a great day down there in warm, sunny Florida.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

    • Hi Betsy, Glad you made it home from Arkansas safely. Yes, I saw on the Internet that there had been cold weather up your way, yet again!!! Good you have a resident Robin and also that Mocker. Oh yes, it was very pleasantly warm here – 82 degrees F. today but windy as all get out. Have a much better weather day tomorrow and a happy one, too!

  2. such a pleasant bird!

  3. Cute shots of the Robin bathing..They are cute to watch.. Happy March, have a great day!

    • Hi Eileen, Thanks! Same to you! Yes, I was enthralled by watching that particular bird bathing – it was very excitedly splashing. I think it liked the warm shallow water a lot! Have a hopefully warmer day tomorrow (or at least in the coming few days).
