It's a wet and wild time when birds take baths.

We recently did a poll on BirdChannel about your bird's bathing style. You can see the results below: 

Bathing poll

I'm not surprised. I always feel like their food bowls, birds live to throw water around too. If we could actually sit down and tell birds, "no, food is for eating and water is for drinking, not for throwing," our birds would not understand. They'd be like that girl from the taco commercial, who always ask "why not both?"

But inspired by the poll response, I decided to compile videos of birds bathing. It's wet and wild going forward here. 

First, we got our beak-first in the bowls.

Loved it. I wish I had a video camera when my GCC decided to take an orange juice bath. I had to help her rinse, she went for broke there.
