The Robin's Bath....

One of the things I love to do is sit on our pool deck and watch the birds come to the birdbath. This pretty robin decided it was bath time! Enjoy!




Ahhhh, all through and drying off! Hope you all are having a wonderful day.

What great pictures! I love watching too. Robins take the best baths. The Chickadees at our house like to sit in the leaves of the tree and let the sprinkler hit them. So cute. More rain on the way here. We didn't get as much as you did yesterday. We got .4. Today should be a wet day.

Good Morning Darlene
I am catching up today as we have been away for a few nights at the seaside.
I really enjoyed your pictures from Bricktown and the baseball game. It looks and sounds like you are having lots of fun family time this summer.
I was interested to see your robin in the bird bath. Your robins are so different from ours. They look larger and ours seem smaller and rounder!

You know what, it's one of my favorite things to do, too...minus the pool deck, though...we don't have one!.

How cute. Bird watching is one of my favorite things to do. We don't have as much variety here in SC as we did in Pinehurst, NC so I don't get to enjoy like I used to.
Glad you were able to catch his little bath.

Stacey said...

We love to watch the Robins too. They wash and wash then wiggle! :) You captured some fun pictures.

Aren't you loving the better weather? It rained here all night last night...again. I don't know what our totals for rain are but it's looking like a jungle here again. I'm grateful for sure.

Good Morning Miz Darlene,
I love sitting out on my porch now too since we did our little makeover. But I think I would enjoy it more if I had a birdbath to watch *smiles* I've hinted before to hubby about us getting one but no luck so far. Guess I'm just going to have to enjoy yours for now! So glad you don't mind sharing friend! Have a wonderfully blessed day!

I love watching birds in the bird bath. Some of them can be very funny and entertaining.

The other day I happened to catch a squirrel bathing...Never seen that before, but it was quiet hilarious.

These pictures just make me smile!

It's funny you posted this because I just moved my birdbath to another location in the backyard a few days ago. It had become hidden by branches from a tree and I was never able to watch any birds come and go. Now I can see it right from my kitchen window.

How fun - we are getting a lot of rain today and do not feel like it is summer. The sun will come back tomorrow, today we're taking a much needed day inside.

You took some wonderful pictures. The bath was fun to watch!
I so enjoy watching the birds which live in our yard. I love to watch the robins hop and stop and hop some more until they hear a worm. I think it is amazing how they can hear them!
They are finding plenty because they are mighty large robins!:)

It must feel so refreshing.

I too love to watch the birds that come in my backyard. I get cardinals, bluejays, thrashers and robins...they are so peaceful to watch. I like to see my kids get excited over seeing the birds and naming what kind they see. Enjoy

Katie said...

I love watching and listening to the birds. I like your robin picture and also your header with the hummingbird. We are really enjoying the hummers at our house.

Hey there Darlene ~ This is a great post. I love to watch birds in a bird bath too! It was so hot here this week that the news had a picture of a squirrel laying in a bird bath cooling off...smart squirrel! Have a great weekend!
