You’ve heard the expression “Dance like nobody’s watching,” right? Well, this little White-throated Sparrow seemed to take the sentiment to heart, only in his case, it was “Splash like nobody’s watching!”
He would flap his wings with gusto, spraying water every which way, and then sit and soak for awhile, his back bedazzled with glimmering droplets.
At one point he became a total blur of brown. I promise he’s in there somewhere!
He gave the impression that he was in no particular hurry; that he didn’t have a worry in the world. Maybe he knows that God takes care of the birds of the air – which makes him a faster learner than me.
In case you were wondering what this little bird looks like in a less drenched state, I’ll close with two pictures of a second sparrow of the same species that was displaying his more refined side.
