Out With The Old, In With The New

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. 😉

  1. How wonderful Kathy for the birds, now that your accommodation rating has gone up another star. The Thrasher certainly likes the new addition:-)

  2. I’d love to get a bird bath but I’m not sure it would be fair to my feathered friends since a big black cat would be lurking nearby… Love the colors on the Thrasher bird and he did seem to enjoy his new bathtub! Hehe! 🙂

    1. We try to put it near shrubs so that they have some place to hide, since we have neighbor cats that like to stalk about the back yard. So far, the birds have eluded the cats. 🙂

  3. Yeah perfect choice of bird bath kathy! so Beautiful Photos ! I don’t have a bird bath, I kept a bowl of water besides bird feeder and Chickadees are frequent visitors 🙂
