His usual time was early morning just after sun up, but he often times made an exception. I was up early hoping to get some captures, and he didn't disappoint. His only issue was me being a little too close. Even Ziggy expected a little privacy. So the captures had to be about 60 feet away.
He wet his feet, dipped his bill, and did a little roll-about in the water. He had the entire songbird spa to himself. No one else was invited to the party, just the way he liked it.
His refreshing 1 - 2 minute cool bath was the perfect start to the morning. A little shake-off, and then it was back to work, with mating to be had, and others to be chased.
