Hello, welcome to springtime in our garden, in Queensland, Australia. Because we live in the Southern Hemisphere, our seasons are the direct opposite to our pals in America, in the Northern Hemisphere.
Birds line up to take a bath, while scout birds keep a watch that everything remains safe while their buddies are bathing. The bird in the photo (above), is lined up waiting to get into the bath – he’s next in line.
The same bird who was waiting in the trees, gets to have his bath.
The same bird stayed in the bath for a few minutes, jumping in and out and having a great time, then it was time for him to leave so another bird could have a go too.
By this time, another bird was already in a tree, waiting to fly in and a bath too.
Its quite tricky to photograph wild birds “doing their thing” because they have so many safety measures in place, such as scouts who yell if anything looks suspicious. What could look weird about a human with a camera and a long lens, making clicking noises a hundred miles an hour – pointed in their direction! Hee Hee!
Don’t forget that we host the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop – really hope you can join us. *waves paw*
