Several robins, those signs of spring, appeared on the scene, flashing red breasts and bright eyes.
A sparrow came in for a quick drink before returning to the forsythia bush and his chirping companions.
One of the flickers joined the group and took a bath after the robins.
A starling dropped in for a dip in the water. I love the yellowness of its beak against its black feathers.
The birds left as quickly as they came - when a large roaming neighborhood cat appeared on the scene. Diva Dog barked and chased the cat. Good Dog!! :-)
We really do want to set up a birdbath for our feathered friends - it's a joy to see and hear them in our backyard. Wing Nut also loves learning about the different types of birds in the area and frequently pulls out the Audubon books to try and figure out what she just saw.
