Scrub and Grub

This Blue Jay stopped in to sit and soak in the fountain.

After his scrub (which left him drenched, drippy, and looking dirtier than when he started) he flew up to the deck rail to grab some grub.

Then, with his feathers washed and his stomach filled, he found himself a sunny spot to perch while he dried off.

These guys are always one of my favorite birds to photograph.

    Different species of birds gather in our fountain at different times during the day to bathe, get a drink or visit.
