A warm day meant the sliding door was open. Near this door is our dining table. Just outside this door is a collection of potted plants and a plastic bowl full of water for the birds to drink from.
This blackbird is often in this area of the garden and as I was eating my lunch, he appeared to drink from the bowl. Fortunately I had my camera right next to me.
The birds seem so at home; it must be beautifully peaceful in your garden.
Thanks. There are very few cats in the neighbourhood these days. I feed the birds so perhaps that keeps them coming. The sparrows do like eating my lettuce and silver beet if the net blows off the pots….:-(
