Eastern Bluebird (Sialia sialis)This evening the dinner entertainment was watching six bluebirds at the birdbath. They seemed to have some order to the rotation in which they bathed, but at one point there were three in the bath at once! We have three similar simple bird baths located around the house but for some reason this one is the most popular. I added the wire bee sculpture this year and the birds readily perch on it and then hop into the birdbath. They actually splash quite a bit of water out so I need to remember to fill the bath tomorrow but not too full, as they prefer the bath when the water is very shallow.

See the following Friday Bluebird Bath post for a video of the splashing birds.
