The inhabitants of the land brought water to him that was thirsty...Isaiah 21: 14

This Black-capped Chickadee came to the feeder on a very warm day on August 29th...
when it was 100 degrees... I saw by the way it had its mouth open that it was thirsty and needed water to I went outside to refill the bird bath. They could go to the spring to drink also but he needed water closer and quicker than he could fly to it...

Thank you Gloria (Je suis Moi) for the nomination...Very much appreciated!
