Re: Chickadee Bath

A very enjoyable set.

I suppose that each non-swimming species has a maximum water depth that they will use for bathing.  I have a pet (rescue) pigeon that likes to have a bath a few times per week and one day I decided to see what he would do in 'deeper' water so I slowly added water to his bath while he was in it. Having a high centre of gravity (unlike a duck), as soon as his feet couldn't touch bottom he became unstable and capsized - before leaping out of the water.
