All of these pictures will probably have to be clicked on to see what I am talking about. I was not able to get any closer, especially to the birds. I took the pictures out of the window in my computer room. This first shot is of our Manx cat that really does not want to get a drink but would love to catch a bird. I think she is going to get a new collar with a bell. Her name is Sweetie. The next picture is a beautiful yellow bird taking a bath and the last picture is of a Blue Jay and I think he is saying, "where did all of the water go and I wonder if I'll fit in this tiny thing"? That is why I added the larger tray of water that you see in the first picture. As I worked at the computer the other day I saw bird after bird come get a drink and take a bath. I filled that little one up about three times before I said, "this will never do" and added the larger one. They come one right after the other, small gray birds, big yellow birds, mocking birds, cardinals, and blue jays. I guess I need to get out my bird book and find out the names of the ones I'm not familiar with.
It is a wonder that we have so many birds since we have four cats outside. I guess the secret is feed the cats real good so all the want to do is lay around on the front porch and sleep.
