Splish Splash, Fox Sparrow Takin’ a Bath

FOSP_bathes

While birding Fort Griffin State Park with Heidi (awesome birder, transplanted Houstonian, she too has been stuck in mud), we came upon a small puddle of water where the local residents were taking public bathes. But these residents bathe with their finest attire, and one unusually good lookin’ “Winter Texan” (well he came to Texas to get away from the snow) put on quite the show. A series of Fox Sparrow photos shows just how he splish-splashed and was ready to party. He certainly looked happy after his frigid dip. Yes, we saw some other birds this day.
