Sip, Dip, and Drip

The word of the day must have been water, because that’s what all my backyard birds seemed to be craving today.

Some stood and sipped…

While others sat and dipped…

And some splashed and thrashed about until their feathers dripped.
Like this Carolina Wren…

Everywhere I turned, another bird was enjoying a drink or a bath.  It was definitely a wonderfully wet afternoon!

    I love the bedraggled look some birds have when they get out of the bath, wet feathers standing every which way!

    Most refreshing to watch your birds enjoying the cool water, mine were all hiding from the 93F heat, it was not a good birding experience for me today:-)
