I have three watering cans sitting on each step full of water, you can just grab one and go. But they have become the watering hole for the chickadees, nuthaches, finches, squirrels and chipmunks. I often wonder why, as I have a pond and four birdbaths.
But as I sit on the steps a baby chickadee keeps landing on the sprinkler and looking at me, as if to say I need a drink.
I move down one step and it hops over to the watering can to get a drink.
I take several shots, but the noise of the camera causes it look over the handle to see what I am doing.
Everything is Ok and a few sips later off it goes.
The hummingbird feeder is very busy, but not with hummingbirds,
the goldfinches and chickadees also drink from the ant moat.
The female hummingbird arrives for a drink of nectar and I get to take my pictures.
What a wonderful way to spend a summer afternoon.
