Wet Catbird Loving the Bird Bath!
Splish Splash, this Gray Catbird is loving our bird bath in this unseasonably warm weather here in southern NH and really getting into it, splashing and dunking its head underwater. This is the ideal bird bath in that it has a non-slip surface, a fountain to recycle the water (birds love fountains) and it is just the right depth. This is the time of year that birds are molting their feathers, they may also have feather mites, so a nice good cleaning is just what they're after. Provide them with a really good bird bath, some daiquiris and monogramed towels and they will line up!
