Dirty Birds

I think my birds are looking a little "rough" lately.

Case# 1 - doesn't this chickadee looked like someone "mussed" him up?





















Case #2 - My dirty Robin diving headfirst into the birdbath. At least he's cleaning himself off.

Ha ha...if you think they're bad now...wait until August - they are all haggard after the nesting season and then they molt - poor things! Cute pictures!

Bird girl - August sounds like another photo opportunity! :-)

Birdlady - at least the Robin knows what to do - right? :-)

Naturegirl - thank you! The Robin is a favorite subject.

Sandy - yep - you can still be dirty & cute at the same time!

We have some very messy looking blackbirds visiting us right now. I think it's where they are going in and out of their nests, feeding babies. The branches and twigs they pass through mess up their feathers. SOme even have little blad patches!
