Bird of the Week Challenge: 7th July - Bathing Birds

Hey all

We are one week in to our bird bath citizen science project: Bathing Birds (and we have about 10000 individual records already!) - so I think it is appropriate that we capture some shots of birds having a bath (or a drink) - can be in a man made bath or natural water source. Nice and easy week this week.

Guidelines:

  • Each bird species can only be posted twice (and not by the same poster)
  • Each poster must wait 3 turns before posting again
