Are you ready for another episode of Friday in Mountain View? It's an exciting day around here. Yesterday was no exception because the cardinals came to visit.
Bathtime starts for the male after the female scouts around to make sure everything is safe.
Get wet all over.
Come up for air once in awhile.
Be sure you wash everywhere.
About time to preen now
Can you tell we are easily entertained around here and also why we love it so much. The birdbath is a small tub. A submersible pump pumps water through that hole you see in that rock on the left. There are rocks in the bottom of the tub that water covers about an inch deep. That way the birds can always touch the bottom, so they feel safe.
