Posts Tagged ‘bath’

Yesterday was a beautiful day to sit outside. Temperatures in the 70s all day, some sun, more clouds but a NE breeze of 5-10 MPH all days and humidities way down. I did all my chores alone and did not break a sweat. After finishing moving a large pile of chat used for walkways (we cannot get river gravel here because it is not legal to remove it from the local rivers; thankfully), I sat on the partially finished deck and watched the bluebirds bathe; the best I could count was 25 spread across 3 baths. They are a joy to watch and have been bathing together since late June. They are very wary as a group Рwith many eyes; so I took these photos from inside through a glass window with a Canon 50D and an EF400L 5.6 Lens at ISO 1600.

I must change and freshen the water daily, or their not interested. The adults bathe first and the the older fledglings and finally those from Brood 3. Id say the fledglings are pretty much “on their own” now.
