Odd to think of 80s F as being better but since all of July had highs in the 90s and 100s F, it's an improvement.
The bluejays feathers in the first shot look so soft as opposed to the male towhee's drenched and stringy looking feathers in the second shot.
The female cardinal above looks comfy in the bath and her beak's color matches the bath.
I like the way you can see all the colors in her feathers in the shot above.The pair of finches above look pretty close for comfort and below they have moved apart to watch the male cardinal hog the bath.
Below the male cardinal is drying off in the pecan tree.
The male towhee is back in the bath.
Next he checks out the other bath.
A male cardinal and bluejay below position themselves perfectly to be photographed through the window.
It always amazes me how trees can hold onto the soil on a creek bank.
The male cardinal below isn't quite grown up or at least his body feathers aren't the bright red they will be in the fall and winter.
