While I was waiting for Rick one day, I caught this robin in action – very enthusiastically splashing around and enjoying the water.
After her bath she seemed a little damp, but very pleased with herself.
The most entertaining part of this was her choice of bathing facility. Can you guess what it is?
Here is a clue.
A bit more of the picture.
Here is the rest of the story. It had rained the night before, and we were at our friends house. John’s old – and not very recently registered – dump truck had accumulated quite a puddle from the rain. A robin hopped right in and made good use of the “birdbath.”
I think the truck is a little large to fit in most yards, but it did attract the bird, and it made a great bath.
