Thought I’d share this. Although we live on the shore of Lake Champlain we’ve always kept a bird bath full by the feeders (heated in the winter.)  Yesterday, in preparation for todays rain I drained our rain barrels. In the 10-12 minutes the water was flowing 3 Chickadees, 1 Yellow Warbler, and a female Goldfinch all took baths in the puddle formed at the base of the rain barrel. 1 House Finch in the bird bath during the same period of time. Guess it might be time to get a pump for the bird bath.
