American Crow

Rain started falling on 24 November 2020. I was birding in West Bay Park in Olympia. I thought the light was interesting and took this photo of an American Crow. Feathers resist water, which rolls off the bird without being absorbed. In really heavy rain, birds can flatten their feathers, increasing their water resistance. Note the water droplets in the enlarged second photo.
