A study published in 2009 stated, “Birds of most species regularly bathe in water.”
Feathers are a bird’s lifeline: they insulate, are waterproof and, of course, provide the power of flight. A good bath may keep those precious feathers in the best condition possible for as long as possible.
By cupping his hands together under the kitchen faucet, this guy creates a makeshift birdbath that’s perfectly sized for his pet European goldfinch, which doesn’t seem to think twice before taking the plunge.
This bird really enjoyed the bath. It swam, splashed and cleaned itself.
Let’s watch this adorable video about our little bird taking a bath in kitchen.
