Cool Water on a Hot Day

As I write this it is 90 degrees in the shade and 61% humidity. I just went outside and refilled the old cement birdbath that I’ve had for years. I no sooner came inside when I looked out and saw birds lined up waiting for their turn for a fresh cool drink of water.

I have a clothes line which is held up by strong wooden posts. There was a Robin and a Mourning Dove sitting on the top waiting for the Purple Finches to finish their turn on the birdbath. I managed to catch photo of a Finch and a Mockingbird. The Mourning Dove’s were on the roof waiting patiently.

Mockingbird and Finch

Happy birds. This makes me smile.
