Zac Brown Band Bird

As I was scrolling through the pictures I took yesterday, I came across this Robin wading into the waterfall fountain and before I knew it I was singing – “Knee deep in the water somewhere, got the blue sky breeze blowing wind through my hair, only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair…”

Well, he didn’t stay knee deep for long.  Soon he had settled in for a leisurely soak.

Every once in awhile he would splash about…

…and occasionally he would dive under the surface and totally disappear beneath a spray of water…

…but mostly he seemed content to poof out his feathers and enjoy a little refreshing relaxation.

Robins are probably the bossiest birds in my backyard (they torment the Bluebirds mercilessly!) but they really are beautiful bathers.

And thanks to this guy, I’ll be daydreaming about the ocean and singing Zac Brown songs for the rest of the day!

  1. What a happy little birdie he is! Wow, I’ll have to be on the lookout – I’ve never noticed the robins interacting with the bluebirds. Great shots (as always), Kathy. ❤ I'm wondering if maybe you should attach speakers to the deck – the music may draw the birds as much as the bark butter lol.
