    Beautiful shots Keenlearner. Looks like they were just waking up. The second one looks like he or she came to inspect your rose bush. Those are rose leafs I presume in front of the second bird.

    Thank you Paul. Because I disturbed him from his bath I don't think he was too amused by my intrusion. LOL

    Thank you Rick. Yes, you are so right. The little sparrows love going through the Rose bushes looking for insects.

    Thank you Scott. Ha Ha! A little bit too expensive to bathe in I think. Anyone's guess as to what was going through his mind LOL

    Nice shots Pauline, that blackbird looks like he got up on the wrong side of the nest that day!

    Thank you Lisa. It just tickled my sense of humour. In a very short space of time he had his feathers all preened nicely and you wouldn't have taken it for the same bird. LOL
