I was taking pictures of several birds taking a bath last week and started thinking I probably have a number of photos from the past of birds in the process of taking a bath or cleaning themselves after a bath.

Yellow Warbler

This is a Yellow Warbler captured taking a bath in a small stream along the Red Cedar Trail. I watched him for quite a while as he would take a bath fly up to a branch and then fly back down to the stream again.

Mallard Duck

This Mallard duck spent a considerable time preening himself after taking his bath. He became a contortionist trying to make sure each feather was just right.

American Robin

This American Robin had just been in the bird bath and was spending some time working on it’s feathers.

Grey Catbird

The Grey Catbird was busy using the bird bath in front of the house.
