The multipurpose water bowl out back gets lots of use by a variety of drinkers.
The songbirds use it, the chickens drink from it when they are free ranging, the dogs lap from it ... I personally haven't tasted the water in the bowl, but apparently it's pretty tasty.
It's probably the green coating of unicellular algae coating the bottom and sides that give it a distinctive flavor.
Last year, I posted similar photos except the bird in the jacuzzi was a blue jay. This year it's the cardinal that's chilling out.
Perched on the high dive above the pool ...
Am I having a "good feather day" or what?
I guess standing on the edge of the high dive is not very scary when you have wings.
Pupdate: Gumbo is home and doing fine. He seems so tiny next to Bear who grew last week, while sick little Gumbo lost weight. Bear seems to think Gumbo is the neatest chew toy he's ever received and we are running some interference for Gumbo when THE BEAR gets a little too exuberant.
