This Robin is having a grand time catching a quick bath in the heated water bowl. It’s been a long winter, and chances are there has not been another “warm bath” in recent weeks.
This energetic bird will soon drain the bathtub at this rate!
A recent visitor to the feeder varies from the typical House Finch with red markings that can be seen most of the winter. We identified this little finch (seen below) as a Redpoll, likely a male with his pink breast and bright red cap.
Sparrows are constant companions throughout the winter and greet me every morning from the branches of a pine tree outside the kitchen window.
