New Year Day visitors at the bird bath

January 2, 2015

House sparrow drinking  water from the bird bath

 

Somehow I didn't realize how much the birds would be using the bird bath for their water source even in the cold winter weather. After being away for several weeks,  I observed house sparrows, white crowned sparrows and chestnut backed chickadees frequenting the bird bath all day yesterday, as their water source. They only used it as a bath during the hot summer days.

 

Lesson learned, provide birds with a clean water source all year round! These photos were taken within a few minutes of each other.
