Birds and water are such a fun combination!
The other day this Brown Thrasher showed up and landed on the edge of the birdbath.
He got a couple sips to drink, but he simply couldn’t resist the allure of the water and before long he was splashing away.
Every once in awhile he would hop out and give his feathers a good shake…
…then head right back in for some more drenching. It seemed like each time he was more exuberant than the time before!
When he was finally finished, he perched on the edge and gave his feathers one last flap and then flew off to a nearby branch to continue his grooming.
There’s really no better bather than the Brown Thrasher – such wild abandon!

Such an attractive bird wonderfully captured!
They are fun to watch! They are not nearly as grumpy as they appear. 🙂
Brown Thrashers are among the most handsome birds! Your photos are wonderful.
Thank you! Their scowl and glare give them a bad reputation, but they are really fun to have around. 🙂
He looks like he needed that! Lol! 😊
He makes me want to get in the birdbath! Now that would be a post! 😉
You did a wonderful job of capturing the “wild abandon.” Such happy pictures!
Is that how they got their name?
