Trumpeter Swans Bathing
Recently on a visit to Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge, we watched a group of swans sleeping, preening, and socializing. And this one was bathing.
splash splash splish…
flap flap flap.
Ahhh….that feels good. Part of their bathing technique involves turning over into the water upside down and flapping their large webbed feet in the air.
We found ourselves giggling at them. We should all enjoy bathing as much at these guys do.
That looks so refreshing! It brings back childhood memories of reading the book “The Trumpeter Swan”
Wow, how neat!!! I’ve seen lots of birds bathing but never knew swans turned over like that. What a great thing to see.
Wow, you never cease to surprise me. What fun is that? That swan was really going at it…and I loved it. Thank you so much.
That looked refreshing! You’re right, we should enjoy bathing as much as the swans do…..
