We took Tucker for a river romp this morning. This guy sure loves a good splash!
The river (or a lake…or a fountain…or a puddle) is his happy place.
And it’s easy to make friends when you bring toys. I had to laugh at this picture because my hubby has always been the Dad that all the neighborhood kids wanted to play with. I guess some things never change!
But Tucker isn’t the only one who enjoys getting wet and making waves. This Brown Thrasher took advantage of the recently filled birdbath to freshen up his feathers, which – if they are like everything else in Georgia – were probably coated with pollen.
He started off on the calm side…
…but then (as Emeril Lagasse would say) he took it up “another notch!”
He stayed for quite awhile, soaking and splashing and giving any other bird that came close an open-beaked, only room for one, type expression.
I guess sunshine and water is a winning combination for fur…
…and for feathers!
It’s good to be a Lab-loving Birdnerd!
