  3. Delightful scenes of your pretty birds in that lovely birdbath. How kind of you to break the ice for them. Pretty skies too. Wishing you a very happy week Diane :)

    1. They certainly seem to enjoy being clean. When I first started feeding them and putting water out they were totally confused. Not used to having things so easy in our little hamlet as nobody else put food out. Now there are three of us here with some food out, but I think I am the only one with water. Cheers Diane

    1. They do not seem to mind it, so I guess yes they have good insulation :-) T'other Diane

  8. Lovely seeing the birds in the bath. I'm wondering why the birds don't bathe here other than on a hot day. I've never seen them splash about once the rains begin so it was very interesting to see your photos. Enjoy your week.

    1. I am surprised as the birds here just love the water regardless of the weather. They are an absolute pleasure to watch. Keep well and take care Diane.

  11. I love all your pics...the birds playing in the water are great. And such pretty babes also. I don't put a birdbath out cause the birds around have the creek.....they love it.
