Double the Fun

In light of the continued excessive heat (peaked at 106F today) I dragged out my second ground level bird bath, normally used in winter, and filled it, and cleaned and filled the rest.  The extra water was a huge hit today, as species after species stopped by for drinks and baths.  Here, a Brown Thrasher and Eastern Towhee enjoyed the water stations late in the afternoon.  So it was double the fun! (for me, the observer. Not so much for the birds...)  The heat wave lessens only slightly tomorrow and Monday, so the extra stations will be maintained.  I'm expecting another wave of birds!
