Bathing in danger
We have a backyard swimming pool and we’re not the only ones who enjoy a dip on a warm summer’s day. Now bear in mind we have a quite large bird bath set up right next to the pool and we keep it clean and filled. But some of our avian mates seem to prefer to walk on the wild side. Particularly the Noisy Miner Birds (that’s one on the left). So (of course) I wanted pictures. It’s a dangerous, dangerous business. If these birds get too wet – they’ll drown.
So here we go.
They don’t always make it. Sometimes they’re lucky and we’re there to rescue them.
