Splash Week – Day Four

The Eastern Bluebird makes his Splash Week debut today.  These fellows are not the least bit shy when it comes to enjoying their bath, but they do tend to be rather territorial.  It was fun to watch him flap about in the water, and equally as fun to watch him ward off others who were looking to wet their feathers.

He really was quite a bossy bather!

Tune in tomorrow and we’ll take a look at the male Towhee…same bath time, same bath channel…

    Nice captures Kathy! I enjoy seeing any bird taking a bath. It’s fun! I don’t do that myself though! 🙂

    One of my favourite birds, the Eastern Bluebird! How lucky you are to have them year round! These bath photos put a smile on my face reminding me of the young bluebird who shared his life with us this summer. 🙂

    Beautiful photos! It’s hilarious to see a bird that’s usually so composed looking wet and ruffly.
