Backyard Nature Wednesday: Contemplating the bath

Fall migration is beginning to wind down a bit, but almost every day, I still see birds passing through on their way farther south for the winter. My tiny backyard fountain continues to be a magnet to those birds. It's a popular stopover, especially for warblers. 

Just within the last few days we've had Wilson's Warblers, Black-throated Greens, and Tennessee Warblers. Like this Tennessee Warbler, they all look the fountain over very carefully before dipping in to take a sip or to have a luxurious bath.
