Parking Lot Birding

Sometimes the best birding happens before the birdwatching officially begins. On Saturday morning I was waiting with a bunch of Auduboners in a parking lot before setting off for a field trip to Fort Lewis, when I noticed this very, very waterlogged bird.

It was taking advantage of the dewy grass and taking a bath--burrowing and burrying its head into the damp blades and shaking back and forth with great enthusiasm.

It wasn't the "best" birding of the day, but it was definitely the most charming.

  1. Oh, how cute. I actually like wiggling in plants too; the azeleas are having that affect on me now...
