Birds Drinking from a Puddle

Yesterday I wasn't able to join Crafty Green Boyfriend for his walk round Corstorphine Hill but I was very impressed by these photos he took of some birds drinking from a puddle. (Click on the photos to enlarge them)

Hello, what a great sight to see the birds at the puddle. The Ling-tail Tits and the Goldcrest are some of my favorites. Beautiful birds. Thanks so much for linking up and sharing your post. I appreciate your comment and visit too. Enjoy your day and weekend.

It seems... that I was there, Juliet, a parallel to C.G.B's nifty nature photos.

__ During this year's harvest, I watched one deer (in a cast of three) gulp some water from a nearby, and flooded cranberry bog; mesmerized, I watched that trio cavort. _m

Wonderful pictures, I've never ever seen a long tailed tit on the ground!

There is often a puddle right out side the back door and always fun to see some birds come for a splashy bath - even when it is raining! Like kids!

Great photos! Are these common birds your area? They are quite colorful.
