Little Birds

All the crazy storms this summer have left a big puddle in our driveway.  I like to watch the little birds bathing in it.  They flit from the fence to the puddle.


I took these from the house, with a zoom lens, but it really wasn't able to get close enough.  It's a bit of a distance.

Still, there's a lot of action in the puddle throughout the day.  A nice way for the birds to stay cool.  Who needs a bird bath when you've got a mud bath instead?

I bet the birds have really enjoyed that, especially on the 100 plus temp days. We have a bird bath, and when I got so very hot in July, we put out another pan of water so we'd have something for them and the squirrels in the back yard and front yard.

So adorable. I love watching little birds flap their feathers in the water! We haven't had too many puddles of water up this way; we need rain badly.
