Rubber Duckie, you’re the one,
You make bathtime lots of fun,
Rubber Duckie, I’m awfully fond of you…
On mornings when I don’t have to scoot out of the house too early, I take some time to watch avian visitors as they bathe in the bog section of my pond. I’ve separated the Pickerel Rush, Pontederia cordata, allowing for more water than plants in the bog, and birds are enjoying the shallow, moving water. This little guy just seems so happy to have his bath.
After he flew into a neighboring small tree to fluff and preen, his mate hopped to the edge of the public bath.
She was a bit more tentative and I never got good, clear shots of her. Trust me though, she had a great time too.
Fun with birds!
