That’s a Birdbath!

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.
