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!
