Rain is heading this way but we really need it to wash away the yellow coating of pollen. The last couple of days with the wind blowing things are also dry and a nice rain should freshen things up. The birds have steadily making use of the disappearing fountain to clean the pollen from their feathers.
I got pretty tickled with this pair. They came together and both bathed for a minute then one flew off and sat on a limb above while the other bathed. They repeated their visit three times. Looks like it must have felt good to them.
