Bathing Beauties

Country Boy had to put on his dress uniform and go to town to the courthouse this morning to give a deposition. Just another part of his job!  Ya' gotta love a man in uniform!  He also fixed the waterfall in my pond before he left.  For some reason, half the water was gone the other day so he rearranged the rocks and filled it back up.  Seems to be OK now.  He also ran some errands for me while he was in town.  What a guy!  

Me?  I pulled some weeds in the deserted flower garden (as Country Boy calls it) this morning and then sat on my patio and took some more bird photos and read my Hobby Farm Home magazine while Country Boy was gone.  One day I'll get at the deserted garden and rake the leaves out of it and maybe it will look better!  I have some flowers that have come back from the winter and are blooming so it's looking less deserted each day!


There are some days where it seems there's a good photo every time you turn around and other days not so much.  Yesterday, in a matter of about twenty minutes or so, the bird bath and feeders saw a LOT of action!  I'm only going to show you the bird bath photos today because there are LOTS of them!  Soooo, I hope you have your favorite beverage and snack nearby and are ready to kick back and enjoy these bathing beauties!  I know I sure did!

Female Cardinal

The little one on the right has been so patiently waiting!  Again, don't know what kind of bird this is.  The other bird is a Tufted Titmouse.

No wonder I have to fill the bird bath every other day!

Back in for another dip!

Male Cardinal checking it out!

Still with me?

Do you think he's enjoying his bath?

I can almost hear him thinking "Man that felt good!"

We're almost finished, hang in there!

Mrs. Cardinal is back for another round!

Love the hair-do!

Guess what?  You made it!  I have a lot more bird photos to show you but those can wait for another day!

Do y'all know what kind of bird that little blue/gray & yellow bird is?  I'm thinking it might be a Northern Parula but not sure.

I hope you're having a great day!

Till next time,

those are adorable! i love a bird enjoying a full-on bath! :) i was going to guess some sort of warbler for that little yellow and grey thing. looks quite a bit like the yellow-rumped warblers we see here, but not quite the same. i know there's a bazillion types...
