    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 the pigeons also took a bath today!

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

    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!

    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.
