KWIR

Yesterday, all three youngsters went for a dip in a roof-top puddle. Birds bathe to keep their feathers in good order. Where they bathe is a good question. The water shouldn’t be too deep.  There should be some seclusion, since a waterlogged bird is more vulnerable than a dry one. Here’s one answer.I’ve always suspected urban birds of use roofs for their baths.


Note how one of the females snags the male’s tail with a talon. They are very nippy with the bills. too.
