    Default WEEKLY THEME GALLERY 18/7/2011 "Birds at Bath time"

    We've had this theme some time ago but a suggestion by Sonja convinced me to bring this one up again. Your bird might be dust bathing or perhaps taking a dunk in the mud. Look forward to seeing this one, good luck all

    It was a hot day the day I went birding at one of South Perth's lakes; up in the high 30's from memory. The bird's were certainly feeling it!
