My car has been on the fritz so I’ve been stuck at home for days. I usually stay home as much as possible and since I work from home, it’s not so difficult. My daily ritual includes getting up early working most of the day until my son gets home from school, then I head outside to dig, plant and shovel dirt into my gardens. After I come inside and shower I sit in my chair and watch Special Report and it’s right around that time of day that the Robins begin their evening ritual of splashing in the birdbath.
It’s a safe time of day for them because my cats have been brought inside for the night. They get busy digging for worms in my lawn (or, non-lawn) and then go get cleaned up in the birdbath. When I am outside watering new plantings I always clean out the birdbath and add new water. They certainly do enjoy it and they are fun to watch. I’m not a very good photographer when it comes to animals, but this shot of the robin has him looking straight at me!

2 thoughts on “A Birdbath For the Robins”
We have lots of Robins around here. I have a birdbath close to my front porch. I’ve never seen birds in it. I think I’ll put it out in the flower garden and see what happens.
I have no luck getting bird photos.
You may get more takers at the birdbath if it’s away from the house. My cat jumps up and stands in mine – she likes water.
