Thankful Thursday: Enjoy Your Bath

The hot weather and the plethora of young birds in the garden has meant that the gentle and constant flow of water down the waterfall into the pond and the dry earth next to it have both attracted the birds for a dry dustbath and then a wet one.

I just can't reach that itch 
Would someone like to feed me whilst I'm having my dust bath? 
Don't forget to wash under the wings
Communal bathing
So today it's not me that is being thankful on my own behalf, it's the birds being thankful for the readily available bathing just near their bird table food supply.

  1. Yes!!!! Even the birds can be thankful.

    I am sorry I haven't commented for a while despite reading and enjoying your blog.

    1. I'm sure they are Jaz. As for commenting on the blog to use a good Scots, or perhaps more accurately Glasgow, saying "Dinna fash yersel, hen" which loosely translates as " don't worry about it wahine"

  2. The birds look quite happy and very very thankful for the cool water bath on a hot day.
    The pond and its lovely waterfall must be a Spa-like experience for them....lucky birds.

  5. I've put a birdbath out on one of my kitchen window sills (the same where I put food out for the birds in winter), but so far I have not seen any signs of them having discovered it.

  6. I've discovered how to attract the sparrows to my yard - keep chickens. When I put food out just for them they never touched it but when it's out there for the chooks they can't get enough. The pics are delightful!
