Don't post on here much anymore as life has been really busy of late, but I thought you'd like to see this amusing set. My husband called me through to the kitchen the other day - a wood pigeon was sitting in the water bowl which is on the table on our deck just outside the kitchen window. This pigeon sat there for some time so I crept round and got my camera at the ready. Had to take these through the window, but it was worth it. He had a lovely time!!

First of all a nice long soak:

He must have been really hard up for a bath. If you put out a bigger bowl and a little bird seed you would probably have a permanent pet.

That's really funny, reminds me of our conures bathing in their water cups.

Nice series Sheryl.
