Song Sparrow Bath



On a hot mid-day in the Carleton College Arboretum in Northfield, Erika and I came upon a Song Sparrow bathing in a puddle in a dirt road. Judging by the splashing, nothing suits a Song Sparrow better than a good bath on a 90 degree day. Even in colder weather, Song Sparrows are known to bathe frequently, at least once a day during the summer (Arcese et al. 2002).
