2:26. Our resident female eastern bluebird, feeding three five-day-old young in a box in the front yard, stops in for a well-deserved drink. Her plumage is so worn she's barely blue any more.

3:41. A juvenile scarlet tanager drops in for a drink and bath.
It actually goes up to the bubbler and drinks out of it just like a child at a playground. Score another favorite photo!
