Our World Tuesday: Bathing Beauties

The shots in this post were taken during the last week of August and first day of September on my deck.
The American Robin above was enjoying a bath while the bluejay below was considering one.
The transitional male cardinal was strutting around the deck.
The male rufous-sided towhee was splashing up a storm.
 The female rufous-sided towhee was all fluffed out.
I like the way the catbird's beak shadow showed up.
The adult male cardinal and the immature female cardinal seemed pretty cozy.
The next female cardinal still has a tough of gray in her beak but she looks close to adulthood.
The mourning dove and the fish make a good pair.
The carolina wren is drying off.
The juvenile American Robin is considering a bath.
Last but not least is a carolina chickadee.

The first photo in this series reminds me of a bird’s version of a bad hair day … only way cuter!
