2017—Drenched By Choice

The other day I featured a drenched Anna’s hummingbird perched on a wisteria twig.  Although I know the hummers love to bathe, even in the coldest weather,  this time, he was drenched due to the weather, not because he chose to take a bath.

When they’re drenched by choice, all the birds seem cheerful at their circumstance.  The bushies were back late Saturday afternoon, filling the fountain top and splashing until they were soaked.  This drenched little male bushtit stares at the camera with an attitude, as if to say to me, “so, what’s it to ya?”  Unlike the hummer of my previous post, this bird is drenched by choice.
