bathing birds

The summer 'BATHING BIRDS SURVEY' started on the 23rd,  you spent 20 minutes observing your birdbath three times a week, photos if possible and document it on the website.  they did a survey in winter, now the summer one is under way.  yesterday i did my first 20 minutes, four visits

 first two visits, noisy mynas, native ones and very pushy. there is a large group of these living in the garden here.  first two visits, bathing in the bath and in the sprinklers, third visit a little friarbird drinking and fourth visit another myna coming for a drink.   it's a nice way to spend twenty minutes just sitting facing the river with my camera poised in my lap ready to take a sneaky shot without moving :o)
