Bathing Spot

The area flanking a weeping Bald Cypress that reaches over the water is a great place to get a drink and bathe if you’re a bird. Here’s a trio of sparrows, Field, White-throated, and a Song in the background if I’m not mistaken.
The baldy provides quick cover. Catbird shakin’ it.
Two Blue Jays.
Three Eastern Towhees.
Which is some kind of record around here…
Blackpoll Tennessee Warbler. All the pictures above were taken over a seven-minute period.
That warbler taking off…

The day before, Pine Siskins were quite active in the same spot and in nearby trees.
I don’t see these every year. There were dozens of them this time. Hundreds have been seen in the region, thousands counted at fall migration watches.

    I love this series. To see birds living their lives like this is wonderful. I wish I could be a bird for an hour playing in that pool.
