What do water and birds have in common? An extraordinary moment in the morning in a ‘cool pool’. A camera recorded a record 30 hummingbirds bathing together simultaneously in a birdbath (on the other hand, this is what a bird bath is made for).
This is a cute video showing a memorable ‘hummingbird pool party’ and people who see it remain hypnotised by the sweet vision of these fathered friends.
If you would like to go deeper:
A bird bath is an artificial puddle or small shallow pond, created with a water-filled basin, in which birds may drink, bathe, and cool themselves. A bird bath can be a garden ornament, small reflecting pool, outdoor sculpture, and part of creating a vital wildlife garden.
Summer and drought periods are the moment during which you can attract many different species of birds in your garden. All of this thanks to a birdbath. They are perfect if you wish to admire birds you wouldn’t normally see…and right in your courtyard, especially for the wildlife.
Hummingbirds are from the Americas and are among the smallest of birds. They are known for the humming sound created by their beating wings that flap at high frequencies. As humans, you can hear this beat, but on this video what enchants you is the soothing sound of water flowing down from the birdbath and splashing around while these 30 little animals wash themselves.
If you were so lucky to spot a hummingbird in your life, this time you have the chance to see 30 of them at the same time. And the vision is so amazing that people would be happy to see it continuously in loop mode.

Do you have any birdbaths in the garden? Have you ever had the pleasure to see such a massive gathering of birds? Your videos and images are deeply welcome.
