Different species of birds will be seen taking their turn to frolic, in our bird bath. It is a pleasure to watch specially these little ones who will only be seen on the edge of the tapering bath. They know if they go a little further they will drown.

It's so nice to be able to watch the little birds as they happily go about their daily birdie business.

What a beautiful photo of those little birds daring to paddle. The summer has gone here now but I see the magpies coming down to drink the rainwater.

that's what i miss with my pond bein' in current disrepair. the birds used to fuss 'n fight o'er who got to bath in the waterfall. i've'd the need to fish a few out with a net when they've ventured too close to the edge 'n wound up in the pond...'r were knocked off by 'nother bird who didn't wish to wait their turn. most entertainin' n relaxin' to watch 'em, aint it?

@allknowing i'm near constantly distracted 's the birds here come fer shelter, food 'n water durin' the summer. that peripheral vision catches each movement 'n it draws me near.

The little birds are so cute, I have also a bird bath in the garden, not too deep, I do not want accidents.

My birdbath is tapered so the birds know their limit. Just as how I used to swim only in the shallows of the swimming pool Watching a crow bathe is fun too. It will splash half the water out. I have several videos of all these birds doing their thing.

So very pretty, and the size of it is emphasised by the tiny birds. They seem very small?

They are not more than 3 inches and yet they dare to come to the bath.They come in groups. They will swim on the edges of the birdbath.
