This Olive Thrush loves to take his bath here in the dog’s water bowl, instead of in the bird bath provided. After a dip, he perched on the edge of the bowl and floofed his feathers out, looking like he was wearing pantaloons!
Here he is, splashing merrily away; spilling lots of water.
So that is why there is never any water in the dog’s bowls!
And here he is taking a bath; even in the rain!
You’d think that all he had to do was stand out on the stoep and the heavy rain would do the rest. With all the water shortages we have had lately, he could save water and take a shower instead of a bath!
