This Marbled Godwit was giving himself a bath, and I caught this shot - thought it was an interesting caption, something you don't normally see.

Anyone else have any funny pics of bathing birds?  Or has this already been done?

Lyceel -- Are your shots of a Ring-Billed Gull and then Dunlin from the same location? It looks like the same pond.

Yeah, it was really just a puddle that had formed near the water.  They were pretty much right next to each other.

This was the first bather of our "new" bird bath.  We were about to give up on it.  We had found it among the big rocks in the culvert on our property and thought to give it a try since my oldest was able to lug it to the house.  Right after this fellow was done, the next bird was ready to go.  And that was a new bird for us (He's in the previous post)

Before, during & after! This bluebird bathed about 5x. Each time he'd get out, jump up on the fence post & wipe his head, fluff himself out & then start all over. Very amusing!
