Birds.gif: Sparrow Bathing

 (click me to witness unprecedented degrees of bird drying)

White-crowned Sparrow
Churchill, Manitoba, Canada
Member of the Sparrow Family
*true bird fact*~ Most of what scientists know about bird song comes from study of the white-crowned sparrow. Sparrow songs differ by region, meaning that two different birds can speak 'different languages'. Some are even 'bilingual'!

Has what is called 'bird pride'
A harsh judge of character, but fair to those he deems worthy
Has a spiritual nature that is impossible to ignore
Patient but resolute

Full vids of bird both washing AND drying. Don't say we never went the extra mile for you here at amateurnithologist:
