PIC OF THE WEEK: 06/06/16 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2016 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes: It seems evident that this may have been the first bath ever for this very young Woodpecker. Both by its awkward pose and its nervous inspection of the flowing water. Yet it still seemed to know what to do with it all. Sort of. Even as it felt the sensation of becoming emerged in water, perhaps for the first time, it entered the water and began to splash. Then it would hop out, only to cautiously approach the puddle again. It was as if some inate drive compelled it into The Bird Spa. The Downy is the smallest Woodpecker in North America at about six inches in length. If it were an adult, the red markings on the back of its head would indicate it is a male bird. But at this age the juvenile females can also have red feathers along the back of their head. So that is not a definitive mark at this stage. Either way it still rings high in the “cute factor” as it portrays this youthful cumbersome experience. It’s as if to say; “Look Mommy, look. I am doing it!”.

THE BIRD SPA

The Simple Birdbath Alternative • DIY Installation Instructions and Parts List

Birds, like all other animals, prefer habitats that meet all their basic survival needs: food, shelter and WATER! They depend on water to condition their feathers for flight, to help maintain their body temperature, for hydration, and for hygiene. A landscape with a consistent, clean running water source will attract both a greater number of species and a higher count of birds. This especially applies to the many migratory and insect-eating species too. The Bird Spa is a low maintenance water feature, designed specifically for birds. Has ATTRACTED 80 DIFFERENT SPECIES at a single location in central Virginia!
