Charlie has his first bath

I decided that the fiends should have a bath today. A nice sunny and moderately warm day seemed perfect for a dunk.

Jerry, Roswell, Monty and Snowy all had a bath.

Charlie decided that it might be for him too. What he did was climb up to the top of the swing and launch himself down into the water and then fly off. Most impressive.

10/10 from all scoreboards..


Shame my photo doesn’t do it justice, it was over in a few seconds and I didn’t have time to focus!

    Your photo is fab Marianne. Charlie looks like he enjoyed it. Aww bless him. I do love that bird.

      He did enjoy it. He saw Snowy have a go and that’s what made him jump in!

    Darn those birds, they move too fast! I still can’t believe your budgies get into the water. Mine never did, even though the finches obviously have a great time with it. It’s wet lettuce or nothing.

      It did take them a while to get used to it Lisa. They wouldn’t go near the “commercial” budgie bath I spent a fiver on. Clear dishes and either herbs or coloured balls and they’re in!

        I’ve got a clear glass pie plate filled with water which the finches use as a communal bath. I think it’s too late for my budgies: they probably think bathing is for finches only. Also they’re all related and their habits are so ingrained nobody goes too far outside the line.
