Over the weekend, hubby and I took a trip to the “Orange Store” and came home with a new birdbath. Our old one had served us well for many years, but over the winter months it cracked to the point where it was beyond repair.
This Brown Thrasher was the first bird I saw enjoying the new backyard addition. I was so excited when he showed up.
I wanted the birdbath to be fairly flat across the bottom rather than bowl shaped so that the birds would feel safer bathing. This one looks like it’s going to be perfect.
I wasn’t sure how the off white color would do in pictures, but I like the way you can see beneath the water’s surface.
As this fellow got ready to fly off, I called to him (in my mind, not out loud…otherwise, you’d be thinking the old birdbath wasn’t the only thing cracked beyond repair!) – “Be sure and tell your friends about it!”
Then I remembered that Thrashers aren’t the type to have many friends. I guess I’ll have to wait for the Chickadee to show up instead. 😉
