    • Kids are drawn to water, Janna. A city park in Greenville, SC has a man-made waterfall feature, coupled with jets that shoot water out of the ground. The kids came prepared to get wet. I hope they aren’t in the birdbath, either! 😉

  1. I need to learn more about birds. I can point and say that’s a bird–but no names. I saw on my walk today that there’s a free bird walk in February. Maybe I should go.

    And that bird doesn’t mess around when it’s time to bathe.

    • There are a lot of field guides out there to help with identification, and a good set of binoculars, and you’re good to go. I’ve never done one of the walks, but I do see them offered. Usually the time of day and the weather deter me. Other birders will be more than happy to get you started.

      It’s fun to watch the ones who really get into bathing, water flying everywhere.

  2. Thrashers are really an elegant bird. There’s a pair of them around here every year. I smiled at seeing the the photo of that one splashing in the water. Birds are so fun to watch bathing. Great & fun photo. 🙂

  3. CH loves our Brown Thrashers! We can hardly wait till they show up again. They hang out in the same place every year, the flower bed by the road in the huge boxwoods and some small dense tree that I have no idea what it is. We haven’t ever caught them in the birdiebath though!
    Good Morning Patti!

    • I didn’t realize they were a state bird, Jayne. Georgia? And here I thought your state bird was the mosquito! (Saw that on a postcard on a trip through there and it must have made an impression on me.) Do you see a lot of thrashers, then? I’ve not seen more than a pair and their offspring here.

  4. Such an unfortunate name really! I’d like to see one for real.

    Thanks for linking to WBW.

    Cheers – Stewart M – Melbourne.

    PS: sorry for slow reply – I’ve been out of internet range in Tasmania

    • They have such personality, Stewart, and can thrash around the leaves and dirt with that long beak in search of bugs and such. Thanks for hosting. I hope we get to see what you’ve been up to in Tasmania. 🙂
