Ducks and Pigeons bathing!

Today was the warmest day of the year, and the birds LOVED it! The ice and snow melted away into pools of water.  My brother @GoldenFlight took some of the pictures.

 

The Ducks bath time:

And after their baths, some of the pigeons did some flapping to dry off.

Wallace (he has enormous wings)

Our two largest pigeons Phillip and Lauren tend to take a little longer for everything. And they decided they needed to soak a little longer! 

 

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed the pictures.

Great pictures, Joel!
These pictures are absolutely breathtaking!!!!!!!!! <3 Not to mention that all your BURBZES are simply the most beautiful things ever. :) Thank you so much for taking the time to share! 
What wonderful pictures! Congrats on bagging POW :-) Congratulations!
Ha you have puddles just like I did! So did the ducks come out cleaner or dirtier after the bath? :P
Very pretty! :-)
Great pics and beautiful birds! I'm kinda jealous of your pigeon flock
Thank you everyone! Yes we did! I think they were cleaner! (; 
WAAAAAAAA!!!  Are you sure you and Joel aren't Nat Geo photographers?  Wow.  The birds.  The puffy and round pigeon burds are spectacularly cute and gorgeous.  I love that all the feathered beings enjoy the water so much.
 
Vienna after her dive.  How you captured her still encapsulated in water is incredible. 
Beautiful pics and lovely birds.
Snuggles = ADORABLE
What wonderful pictures! You can really tell how much they are enjoying themselves. Such cute birds.
