The smaller birds have taken a liking to the top level of the wonder-fall. It is shallow and a bit more secluded, so they seem to feel safer there.
This lovely little Tufted Titmouse showed up yesterday, and once he tested the water…
…and relaxed a little…
…he began to bathe with abandon! He would flap his feathers and wave his wings…
…and then, bottoms up!
Then, he would pause for a moment, make sure the coast was still clear…
…and resume the same feather flapping, wing waving routine…
…followed with another bottoms up, of course!.
I love when their feathers are all fluffy and poofed out!
I think this little bird’s bath was refreshing for both of us!

Love this! The Tufted Titmouse is so cute.
They always make me smile!
Titmice are one of my favorite smaller birds. I love their pointed hairstyles!
Lovely series!, Kathy 🙂
One thing that brought me great joy seeing this post of yours in my reader, Kathy – apart from the beautiful opening image! – is that I was able to identify the little bird as a titmouse even before I read the post! All the beautiful images shared by you and other bird-loving blogging connections in the USA and Canada is certainly expanding my knowledge!
I understand! I feel the same way when I recognize a bee-eater!
So cute! They’ve been bathing in our birdbath too. So much fun to watch!
Birds and bathing are always mesmerizing to me. 🙂
