Cold Water Wash, Line Dry

I wasn’t planning on posting today, but I had so much fun watching this Brown Thrasher bathing in the afternoon sun that I simply had to share it with you.


He clearly enjoyed the cool, clean water I had just put in the birdbath.  Seems to be smiling, doesn’t he?



When bath time was over, he perched on a Crepe Myrtle branch to dry.


The best pleasures in life are the simple pleasures.

  1. Beautiful pics, simply expressed, with a profoundly rich truth – the simple pleasures are often the most enjoyable and satisfying. Thanks again Kathy!

  2. Hello Kathy,
    I’m so glad you decided to share these with us! I love seeing this bird look so happy, all seems right with the world 🙂
    Best wishes,

  3. This is so special for more reasons than one. First reason is that in my blog yesterday I posted a bird that I couldn’t identify. From reading your blog today, I discovered it was a brown thrasher. The second reason is the wonders of the entire sequence of pictures of the happy little thrasher. They are just a delight to see. And there’s a third reason…I just read your bio statement. I could write almost the exact words about myself. Apparently we have a lot in common. Thanks for sharing this post. It definitely brightened a cloudy and cold day!
