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.
Beautiful photographs, enrapturing birds. I am greeting
Great bath shots, Carver. the Cardinal is looking a little sad there. I always love the towhees. Great birds and post.
Those are endearing shots of cardinals. BTW, the basketball team of the high school I attended was named Robins, while the college division's is Cardinals.
Cheers ... visiting from ABC Wednesday!
Great pictures of some beautiful birds.
little birds in the bath are always adorable
these are great photos
made me smile
That birdbath is in such a wonderful spot to bring you so much pleasure! ;))
gosh, soo much fun. Wich I had been there to see it.
What a great way to spend the morning...both for the birds and for you! The joys of nature!!
I especially like the blue jay and the cardinal shot. You always capture the bird personalities so well.
Oh my gosh, the towhee is practically drowning himself -- that guy really likes his bath.
We had one 90 plus day; I think that was our summer. And then it went back to high 70s.
Thanks for the great bird pix -- they always make me happy!
This collection of photos made me smile and laugh out loud. Such cuteness in feathers.
We have been hotter than you with temps in the 90's..it is a little cooler now but we still need rain which we might get Friday..I think of you everything I fill the bird baths which is several times a day now...Michelle
Man, I'd love to have some days in the 80s. I think we only got to 100 today, which seems like a blessing compared to our last couple of weeks.
Great bird pics; I thought the fluffy bluejay was especially cute.
I love to see the birds have a bath...so much fun...these are great close up of them also. Thanks.
Aloha from Honolulu

Cute shots! A source of water has been important to many birds this summer.
