Don’t tell my backyard Brown Thrasher, but others are starting to sneak turns in his birdbath!
Like this lovely female Bluebird who showed up yesterday for a bit of a splash.
At one point, I’m pretty sure I heard her exclaim, “Look at me! I’m a Blue Thrasher!” But I might have been mistaken since she did sound s bit garbled.
Mostly, she just sat and soaked and enjoyed a brief bit of refreshment.
While she bathed, her male counterpart waited on a nearby branch. Once she was finished, I thought he would hop on in, but instead he opted for the clay saucer that sits on a stump in the same area. He seemed to prefer just a quick sip and a dip of his face in the water.
It was as if one liked the deep end and the other stayed with the kiddie pool.
And in case you were wondering about the Thrasher, he has been giving encore after encore after encore. It seems every time I look out the window he is back at it.
I think I might have to write Audubon and suggest that we change his name to the Brown Splasher.

What a delight Kathy to see all this from the comfort of your home. These birds are certainly blessed with the 5 star facilities at your bird haven:-)
Pretty sure if you google “backyard bird spas and resorts” my backyard is high on the list!
What a terrific series!!
I am having fun seeing who shows up at the birdbath. 🙂
It must be so much fun to watch these birds in action. I especially love the photos with the splashes.
I’m with you…something about the water spraying up in the air just makes me smile. 🙂
such great shots Kathy! I could look at zillions of these bird bathing beauties! Keep em coming! 🙂
Well…there might just be a zillion coming since I can’t seem to stop watching the silly birdbath!
Haha! Love these photos! Maybe it is time for one of your Limericks?! 😍
Hmmm…another limerick…I’ll have to put that thought in my mind and see if one starts forming. 🙂
Love the male bluebird with wings up! Fabulous Kathy! 💐😎
He is a cutie. 🙂
WOW WOW WOW
WOW WOW WOW IS RIGHT! …. we in Western Canada have our Mountain Bluebird–a beauty in its own right–but though I grew up in New York State, I never once saw its State bird, so to see them in your photos like this is truly wonderful.
Thanks – that comment made me smile. I get so much joy in sharing the posts that it’s always nice to know that someone enjoys seeing them. 🙂
Brown splasher, love it, Kathy!
Sometimes my husband reads my posts and just shakes his head. 🙂
I have one of those head-shakers…. LOL 🙂
