Happy 4th of July America!

Hermit Thrush

I’m afraid I have slowed down in my posting….must be due to the hot weather, or that’s the excuse I’ll use. It looks like this Hermit Thrush is ready to cool off in the birdbath and I can’t blame him. We have been under a terrible heat wave in the midwest and it shows that by the weekend it should let up a bit. This photo was taken awhile ago, but still seemed appropriate seeing he/she was ready for a dip. Right now we’re seeing all the fledglings in and about the yard. For the most part though, they are staying hidden out of the heat of the day. Enjoy your holiday everyone and God Bless America!

    Happy 4th! Great picture! Hope we get that heat relief here in the east … coming Monday, they say.

    Lovely photo, as usual. Today and yesterday are our first days this summer of sunshine and semi-warmth in the northwest, and the birds are LOUDly celebrating.

      So happy you liked the photo. It is still very HOT here and the birds are staying cool hidden in our wooden lot, or taking a break in the pond or birdbath. I’m sure it is beautiful where you live and enjoy listening to the birds. Thanks for stopping by!

    Hope everyone had a great 4th!

    I bet that Hermit Thrush really enjoys your birdbath, Joleen!

    We did indeed. That birdbath is a favorite of many birds, thankfully.
