Fat Robins Cooling Off

Here we are, in the midst of record breaking heat. So far in the Denver area, we have broken a record for consecutive days above 90 degrees Fahrenheit that has stood since 1901. Yesterday, we hit 101, and today is projected to reach 104. It is to get above 100 all the way from El Paso, Texas to Billings, Montana. Phoenix is to reach 114 today!

So with heat like that, even the red, red robins need a cooldown splash to get bobbin' along. This morning as I was leaving for work, I noticed a trio of these cute birds enjoying the water in my birdbath. That splashing around doesn't look like a half bad idea!
