Hot weather = lots of activity at the birdbath

With the heat wave rolling in I made sure the birdbath's were clean and full. The birds started filing in immediately!

Yes, there is a question in the back?

Even a squirrel needs a sip:



Seriously though, if you want to attract birds this time of year and get some interesting pictures, you can't beat a bird bath. Mine are just plastic bases to plant pots with a stone in the middle. Cheap and very effective.

Catch-and-Release wild trout.
