The temperature didn't reach 60 here yesterday and it rained most of the day.

But that didn't stop the Goldfinch couple.

They were enjoying the birdbath for its true purpose: bathing.

One of the couple was a bit cautious while the other threw caution to the winds.

And water into the air.

Finally it became too much of a temptation and the reticent one joined the other in a communal cold water soak.

The tiny birds put on a good show for my camera before flying up into the tree to shake it all off.

All I could think was: brrrrr!

It was quite chilly down here yesterday too! I love to watch the birds enjoying a splash in the water.

I guess having a heart that beats twice as fast as a human's keeps their little bodies warm when it's cold outside.

They do put on a good show!

I just had a family of Mountain Jays at the old swimming hole. Mama, Papa and a fledgling all took turns drinking and a quick wade for one or two in the pool. I was only able to manage two pictures of one of them drinking. I may never leave my window.

What a splash! Brr! Too cold for me...
