One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2016—Back In The Bubble

My millstone fountain was on the fritz while I was in Australia but my multi-talented bird-sitter, Cody, repaired it, replacing the pump.  The new pump bubbles vigorously and produces a much larger bubble than before so at first, all the birds in my yard were wary of it.  But, after a few days of acclimation all the “regulars” —hummingbirds, scrub jays, mourning doves, lesser goldfinches, and now, even the bushtits—have finally tried it and seem to enjoy it.  My post yesterday showed the lesser goldfinches on the other fountain but later in the day, they gravitated to the new, big bubble.

As regular readers of this blog are aware, whenever I can photograph the bushtits bathing at the fountain, it’s a treat for me and here they are, enjoying being back in the bubble.
