Bottoms Up!

What is this? See if you can guess before reading further.

It sort of looks like a bird, but it must be a pretty weird one.

Bird? 2

Oh wait, now it looks more like a bird.

Oh, That’s what you are!

A Cape Bulbul!Β Pretty little thing.

But really little bird, I don’t think it is good for you to drink water out of my chlorinated swimming pool;

Even if you do perform amazing acrobatics to do so!

 

post script: The first photo shows the little Bulbul standing at the very edge of the pool, with its bum in the air and its head down in the pool taking a drink. In the second photo it is right way up again. Both photos are taken from behind the bird.

    I do agree: it’s not good for the bird to drink out of your chlorinated swimming pool.

      I’m sure he’s been doing this for a while, but I never saw him before. There was plenty of fresh water available in 5 dog bowls on the stoep – and in the bird bath! πŸ™‚
