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.

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

    Love it! Have our own thrasher aggressively guarding her nest in the pricker bush.

  4. 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,

    I do love your posts! Thank you

  6. Wow, he even has a “spin cycle” (third pic)! 😀 Thanks, Kathy!

  7. If I had your yard and visitors, I don’t think I would get a single thing done…ever! So much enjoyment every moment of the day.

  8. 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!
