2022—Bath Time

There is no real bath time for the Bushtits. They bathe in the early morning, at midday, and in the early evening. What is so very charming about them is that they rarely bathe alone. It is always in a group, squashed tightly together. The most I’ve counted at one time bathing together is 13 so this group of five is relatively small for a Bushtit bathing experience. And they are very enthusiastic bathers as evidenced by the bird on the left completely blurred as it rolls in the water flowing from the bubbling center of the fountain.
