I feel like a murderer! I try to keep the birdbath full of water, and think this is even more important than birdseed in the feeder. But today when I went out to water some flowers, I came upon a terrible scene--a beautiful mourning dove was on her back with feet in the air in the DRY birdbath. What a message she sent to me! She could have died somewhere else, but by doing it in my birdbath she made me promise to be more caring in this 100+ degree heat.
