Red stopped by this morning for a dip in the pool.

After a soak and some vigorous splashing he perched on the edge and slaked his thirst.

Guess he'd never heard mama saying "Don't drink the bath water!"

And then he flew away again.

And this afternoon, just a few minutes ago, we had another visitor.

A mockingbird!

But no bath for this nervous fellow.

Just a couple of quick sips and a rapid departure.

Cute company to have around!

I like the picture that caught him in the act of takeoff...but it looks like he's showing his butt.

reminds me of the old song lyrics..."shake a tail feather!"
Yours may be the most photographed bird bath in the west.
