Splish, splash …

Bird-baths are a great way to see some of our smaller birds up close – even though balls of sodden feathers can sometimes be hard to identify! Birds welcome shallow baths placed close to shrubs for protection, but remember, as well as drinking, birds bathe and occasionally poo in the water, so baths need to be cleaned and topped up regularly.

    What nice clean baths you provide. We have all the same species at our birdbath, though not entirely sure about the yellow thornbill. We also have families of Choughs all squeezing in, Black chinned Honeyeaters, and White Plumed. In fact all the
    birds use the birdbath, and a Blue tongue likes to lie in the warmer one on the ground.
