New Bath is Definitely in Use

I figured it wouldn't be a great matter of time before the first bird made use of my new, third bird bath (out in sunnier digs equipped with a solar powered fountain).  And I caught sight of the first known user, a Gray Catbird, yesterday.  This bird was having a marvelous time bathing, and went in and out a number of times in a five minute period.  Catbirds are well known enthusiastic bathers and this was no surprise.  What did surprise me was that the fountain's operation did not dissuade the bird at all.  I wondered if it would alarm them.  So we have a happy conjunction of bird, water, and garden.  You can't beat that!
