Bathtime

While I was walking about during the Doors Open event I passed this couple having a good time in the front garden of a home near the U of Toronto. It was a really hot day and these robins were taking full advantage of this pond to cool themselves. I'll be back inside the buildings at the university tomorrow.

We see few of these lovely robins and I don't know why! But what an ideal place for them to bathe and play!

I've seen your photos of robins and in the past I've felt a little jealous that we don't see robins here in the hot valley. Then just the other day, there was a big fat robin just like the ones in this photo sitting on a branch of a tree right here where I live. In all these years, I've never seen a robin here in AZ. Now there is one living somewhere around here. I used to see them all the time when I was growing up and I missed seeing them. These two are really enjoying themselves.
