White-crowned Sparrow

In the Uintas, I saw a very common bird in an unusual situation: the White-crowned Sparrow bathing.



Birds really take joy when they’re bathing.  I’m still taking Stonewall into the shower and he gets so excited!  This guy was equally excited to bathe right after a rainstorm.



My favorite pictures are the ones where you can see the droplets.



He looks very pleased to get wet.  He was taking care of a baby earlier, so it’s good that he still has some me time for the spa.

    I do love the skills you are developing with that camera. It is a pleasure to watch. Also love that sparrow bathing! Thanks for sharing it with us!

  2. I’ve seen the white-crowned sparrow in the mountains fairly often, but I’ve never seen one taking a bath. Great captures!
