Fun, fantastic images! It's nice to know that the little critters can quench their thirst at your bird bath on a hot day. Oh so sweet!

beth said...

does he ever bathe in there ?

{and your blue jay photos were amazing....all that fluff and craziness cracked me up. his feathers reminded me of when we used to bathe the kids and towel them off so there hair stood up just like that}

lucky squirrel

Farm Girl said...

I was hoping to see a squirrel take a bath. That would have been so funny, to see him soaping up and rinsing. :)

Buttons said...

All he needs is a fuzzy bath robe and a shower cap. B

Debbie said...

mine do the same thing!!!

it looks as though he's looking for you "hey, is that crazy lady around, snapping my picture"?? i don't want her to miss this!!!!

heyBJK said...

Ok, he's either eating the bird bath in that first photo or he's sharpening his incisors!

Angela said...

I guess he just didn't need a bath today! Or the water temperature wasn't warm enough for him! lol

Have a Great Day!
Angela

Mom's bird bath is popular with the herd of squirrels living in the oak trees just outside her front door.
