The word prompt from Bren for the Photo for the Week 27: Time
I love the bird baths that are at my besties place and here at mine. Some birds opt for a quick dip while others just love to splash about.
It’s time for bath time
The first few are from the bird baths at my besties old place. This one in particular was near the verandah so it gave me plenty of opportunities for bird bath photos.
Some birds, like this Eastern Yellow Robin, just enjoyed a splash around
A Magpie getting right in
I think this was a Whipbird really splashing about
The Noisy Miners loved to get wet
Sometimes it is just good to sit and soak like the little Thornbill
The Eastern Whipbird jumped right in
A Red-browed Firetail Finch made sure the water went in everywhere
Onto a few photos from my place. It is a pity that possums managed to smash my lovely terracotta bird bath while trying to get a drink even though they had lots of ground level watering places around the garden.
The White-throated Treecreeper enjoyed a good butt soak
A female Satin Bowerbird liked to sit and think
As did a Rainbow Lorikeet
The little hanging pot is a favourite for small birds
Really getting a splash on
A quick in and out for a White-throated Honeyeater
Quite often it was mixed bathing. The Eastern Yellow Robin and Silvereyes shared a quick dip
Often the Rainbow Lorikeets came in numbers which often ended up in squabbles
Hope you enjoyed Bath Time
