Backyard Pool Party

Was out watching the bluebirds earlier. I could hear the water splashing in the nearby bird bath under my tulip poplar tree. The big blackbird was having a pool party by himself. Water was going everywhere.

I had my camera and snapped a photo before he was done. And then I had to fill the bird bath up again. I am tempted to buy a bigger one but it would be more to maintain. So I will just continue filling this bird bath up 2-3 times a day.

I noticed the blackbird coming out of a row of cypress trees in my yard and could hear babies. That means I have found three nests so far in my backyard. Oh, and one robin’s nest in the front. Cool to have a robin’s nest in the front and the backyard.

Will try to get closer next time so you can see how far up the water was being splashed.

Geez, the things I do for these birds. But I enjoy every minute.

  1. Lovely picture and a beautiful sight. I do not have a bird bath but we have a natural pond just a bit further out of the backyard. So we enjoy the ducks, the bluejays and other birds sometimes splashing in it.
