Dirt BathPosted: March 31, 2017
The planter on my patio table has been constantly dug up.
Dirt from the planter is flung all over the table and floor. What animal was doing this? Naturally, squirrels were the first suspect. I even put red pepper on the dirt.
One day the culprit was finally revealed. It was none other than my Carolina Wrens, Frick and Frack that have been taking a dirt bath in the planter. The first time I witnessed the bath, one of the Wrens enjoyed the dirt for quite awhile and ended with a grand finale of throwing dirt high in the air.
I caught them again and was able to snap a quick photo through the kitchen window with my cell phone. Frack enjoyed the bath while Frick watched from a chair. I didn’t get Frick in the photo.
