Chance and I were entertained by an American Redstart. Look at him! He is poised almost like a high diver!
He checked out the birdbath…it must be Saturday night? When I was little we bathed on Saturday night so we would be good and clean for church on Sunday morning. Yesiree we bathed once a week whether we needed it or not.
Water was splashing all over. I was laughing and Chance was looking at me like I was nuts, he of course spends much time surveying his domain..so he is used to the bathing birds activity. I think he is a little jealous..his pool is still in the grain bin.
The little Redstart had a blast! I watched to see if I could spot a female American Redstart..I think I saw one but didn’t get her photograph. Perhaps she is shy.
How did we survive with just one bath a week ? In the summer we went swimming or played water games in the yard squirting each other with the hose. I was in third grade before we got a real bath tub and toilet (Yay!!!!) in the house. After that we took more baths. Nowadays we would never think of missing a daily shower/bath:)
