Avian Ablutions

Spotted Towhee; Effie Yeaw Nature Center, Sacramento, CA; NOV 2018

At last, the rainy season has arrived in northern California. The dry season runs from April through October so, when rain arrives, it is a wonderful thing to see.  But humans aren’t the only ones that appreciate the new fallen rain. Some of the birds were happy to see puddles form so that they could perform their ablutions also!
