But not all citizens of this earth have the same options and opportunities. I've recently observed some rather unusual behavior among the neighborhood wildlife and I suspect it's heat related.
Take this bunny, for example. I suspect she found a shady spot where we'd recently watered the .... weeds and found that by stretching out on the cooler grass, she could cool off a little bit.
So that made me wonder about this posture that I've seen bluebirds assume before. I always wondered why they did it and now I suspect they're trying to cool off too.
So, it's back to the cooling off theory. Perhaps he should have just visited the old watering hole like these guys. Obviously, all he'd have to do is sit there while another bird takes a bath and he'd be the recipient of a nice, cool shower.
