|A juvenile American Robin studies the water in the rocky "stream bed."|
|The rocks allow for several depths, from above the water to three or four inches below the water. The water flows from the big waterfall tub on the left, to a small waterfall that flows into the pond on the right.|
We didn't have a lot of room for the pond, so we opted for a 50-gallon tub instead of a liner. In a couple of years I'm going to put a larger pond in the yard where I have more room. We will use a liner and create a small beach for it, which the birds will love, but until then, the 10-gallon bird friendly "stream bed" works great!
|A juvenile robin still holds on to some of its baby down. Soon those little fuzzies will be gone.|
|He only studied the water for a short while before drinking from the stream.|
