Another day at the bird bath: Who splashes the most

I love watching the birds when they come in for a quick dip or a good long wash. Some just zip in for a quick wash while others really take bath time seriously. There are the birds who like to be alone when bathing, some make it a family affair but it is always a lot of splashing around.

The magpie just wanted to dive right in.

Image

And once he was in, he just tossed beakfuls of water all around.

Image

The Lewins Honeyeater liked a quick dip, a bit of a drip dry and then was off.

Image

The Spangled Drongo often just sits and waits before diving in.

Image

Inevitably someone else thinks its bath time as well, much to the Drongos disgust the Noisey Miner had bath time on its mind.

Image

The Wattlebird also tried to extend the Drongos bathtime by just diving right in.

Image

Usually the Wattlebird makes sure there isn’t anything in the water before venturing in.

Image

The Noisey Miners are some of the birds who like to make bath time a family affair.

Image

They just love to splash about.

Image

But the best of all the bird bath splashers would have to be the Eastern Whipbird. After a bath, he liked to have a good shake.

But in the bird bath………

The Eastern Whipbird, I think, is the best splasher in the birdbath…what about you?
