Thanks badknees, I'd forgotten about it.  Until Cookies video I'd never seen a hummer take a bath, but I guess "why not ? "

I am currently getting daily visits from some Ruby-throated

My son participated in a hummingbird capture and tag activity at Brazos Bend State Park a few years ago. It was cool to see them up close. Amazing critters!
