Looks as if the birds really are enjoying their bath time, booni!    :heart

i was watching my Bird feeder & fountain while doing dishes & spotted a fluttering Grosbeak & discovered there were two of them, being fed by the Mum.

These Birds were fluttering through the wet Japanese Maple leaves to take a bath!
So i took a video to help with identification.
So far i have Orange-crowned Warbler.
Not sure who the dark one is yet.
Aha! - Black-throated Gray Warbler youngster!

There was a huge flock of Greater Yellowlegs!

Usually you see them one at a time.
i count 15 in one foto.

i had just taken some fotos of flowering plants in my garden so i had my camera with me.
i heard lovely singing in my bushes & wondered who they were?
i figured they were Purple Finches.
But then i spotted them, Song Sparrows!
They were twittering away, one would fly a short distance & land & sing, then the other would follow & they*d be twittering away.
So this made it hard to catch them at it.
i ended up with just this little clip of one of them.
