A Bath A Day


This shot was taken quickly through a window of the dear Robin who comes every day between 5:30 pm and 6:00 for a bath in the large saucer of water I have out on my roof deck. It especially seems to like it if the water has just been changed and is quite cold.  Other birds drink all day from the water but this bird just loves to get soaked as it is in this pic.

Lovely bird. Nice to watch the bathing bird. Have fun, we also have The European Robin (Erithacus rubecula). But it’s a whole different bird than you have there.

A creature of habit.

Robins, of all the birds that visit, do seem to like the manic splashing.
