Rain replenishes backyard birdbaths

And this (at left) is what it's all about...a robin that has drenched itself and looking exceedingly pleased with itself.   We have several birdbaths, and my wife and I enjoy them as much as the birds do.   It's always a challenge to keep them filled with water because there are so many species of birds that use them to bathe in and to drink from.   
Then there are the squirrels, the chipmunks, the raccoon, the skunk, the cat, and who knows what else in the dark of the night. Apart from seed in the feeders, and bugs on the ground, no other item seems as important to the birds as water to drink and bathe in.
