RE: blue jay bathing lesson

What a neat thing to see! I made myself a birdbath out of an upside down
trash can with a terra cotta saucer on top today. The cardinals found it
immediately. I know I can buy one at Lowe's but I've got other stuff to pay
for right now, and I figured hey, it's watching the birds that's the fun
part right?
