How long did you have to wait for that? I just love the way the robin is looking at the camera.
It was taken through the kitchen window Christina and I was surprised how well it came out. I gave the window a clean and then took some more photos but the first one was still the best. Birds use this little sink all the time for washing and drinking and it’s great to watch them from the house – if they are on their own they tend to stick around a little longer and Robson was there for at least 5 mins, plenty of time for me to get my camera.
Hi Cathy, what a fabulous photo of the robin taking a ‘dook’ and how perfectly at home he looks too 🙂
Thanks Elizabeth – he was pleased to have it to himself
That is a fabulous photo! I’m so impressed. That is one lucky bird, she has a palace for a bath!
Thanks Susan – this sink is well used by birds and the blackbirds have a great splash in it when it’s their turn!
What I lovely photo. That sink is in just the right place, perhaps I should relocate my bird bath so that I can see it from the house.
Thanks Brian – there was a gap in the hedge here (just outside one of the kitchen windows) and it took a fair bit of pondering before I came up with the ‘dry stone wall’ and then the sink. The water is pumped from a reservoir and back through the pipe – as with the stream I hadn’t thought of the birdlife being attracted to the running water, so that’s a real bonus as the window is a great vantage point
Talk about cute! Does he often do that or was it luck you had your camera handy?
It was taken through the kitchen window and he was there for several minutes so I had time to get my camera – he takes his turn there with the other birds 🙂
How lovely! Just like a little rubber duck!
I am not sure how he would take that comparison – rubber duck indeed! 🙂
Cute! I occasionally catch photos of the birds splashing in my fountain but I have to sneak up near the window or they fly off.
We have 4 different windows in the kitchen and the feeders are in view too – mostly they don’t notice us watching!
Oh a fine fellow Cathy! We have a bird bath opposite our kitchen window but I’ve never seen any of our robins take any interest in it. Quite often though I’ve looked up from doing the dishes and seen a rather ruffled looking jay having a dip which is a rather amusing sight.
Oh well – I am sure a jay in your birdbath is worth at least 2 or 3 robins! 🙂 Great to watch them though, whoever they are.
Absolutely adorable – made my dull day, Cathy!
Oh, I am so pleased Annette!
