Here is a firey-orange Bullock’s (Northern) Oriole male who recently took a bath in my yard pond.

Birds have a hard time resisting running, splashing water.

  1. It is so much fun to watch them take a bath. Great shots. I put up an Oriole feeder this year and it has been great seeing them come to this feeder .
