As I mentioned in the last post, I see mostly Mourning Doves and House Sparrows at the ground birdbath during the day. The Mourning Doves like to park in the water for a long time and rarely seem to splash around, unlike the robin who just got down to business right away. Sometimes the doves have a party. It usually starts with one bird lounging in the bath.
Soon another joins the fun. This one started blowing bubbles to liven things up a bit.
Then a third dove will join in, but the bath might be too crowded so she has to wait on the side. Sometimes it might get a little awkward.
At this point one of two things might happen. 1) The party gets crashed by House Sparrows.
Or 2) dove orgy. A female Red-winged Blackbird walked in on this threesome.
Shocking, I know!
