Wouldn’t you love to have these birds bathing in your yard?Like all creatures in nature, hummingbirds do need water to drink and bath.
They can drink the morning dew where available.
They like to bathe in a rainstorm.
It is fun to watch a hummingbird “take a shower” by sitting open winged in the rain.
Bird baths also attract hummingbirds.
These tiny birds use them differently.
They dive but only skim the surface of many birdbaths.
The water is often too deep for them to immerse themselves.
Hummingbirds like to take a bath in a backyard sprinkler or a hummingbird mister that is commercially made to attach to your garden hose.
