bushtits and the birdbath
In all these years I've never observed bushtits in the birdbath.
This afternoon I counted 15 bushtits taking turns in the bath!
They were there for at least ten minutes, bathing and drying off, then bathing again.
In the above image four bushtits sit on the rim of the bath while one is standing in it.
To the left another bushtit is sitting on the cape honeysuckle branch.
Here, two bushtits are approaching the bath.
Three bushtits in the bath, another diving in, and another waiting for its turn
A total of six bushtits around the bath, while one is bathing.
