Birdwatching Dot Com
Ah, that's better!
The air had a temp of 102 and was heavy as a soggy towel. A brown thrasher seemed to think that a splashy bath made it all better.

All the birds love a birdbath, including brown thrashers like the one at left.
Our favorite bath for summer is the Kozy Spa Bath with Pedestal.

Everyone interested in watching wild birds deserves her or his very own binoculars.
A good binocular for getting started does not have to be expensive, but it should have good optical quality.
The Vortex Crossfire 8x42 is lightweight and waterproof. It focuses as close as 6 feet, and it works well even for a person who wears glasses. It costs only $139.99
