Robin in the Rain

I watched him through the window,
A robin in the rain.
He splashed and flapped his feathers clean
Then shook himself again!

He does look a bit bedraggled, but I suppose he wouldn't have gone in the water if he hadn't wanted to. Must be washing away the winter blues.

A lovely sight. A few years ago, a female blackbird would come and bath several times a day in a flowerpot saucer in my back yard that had filled with rain water - delightful to watch, but nerve-wracking! I had to keep the cats locked in or there would have been a watery disaster.

Oh bless - he looks soaked to the skin! We had starlings bathing in a bowl of water we put out for them when it was snowy. I had to renew it a couple of times a day as it quickly froze, but the coldness of the water didn't seem to deter the birds.

You lucky thing! I have a robin that follows me as I work around the ponies. His song is a joy!
