I Like To Stay In Tip-Top Condition – Juvenile Blackbird

Nearly all birds bathe frequently in water to keep their feathers in tip-top condition, though Starlings, Blackbirds and House Sparrows are the ones we are most likely to see. During the summer, bathing in water also helps the bird to keep cool. Once in the water, the bird fluffs its feathers to expose the skin, submerges its belly and breast in the water, rolls back and forth by dipping its head into the water and creates a shower by flicking its wings. When finished, the bird shakes off the excess water and then flies off somewhere to dry and preen. Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 Southland Zew Zealand
