Walking along the beach in California, I came across these Elegant Terns taking a bath! They were fun to watch as they dipped down, got water on themselves, shaking it off and then fluffing themselves out…
Elegant Terns taking a bath.
Elegant turns and a Whimbrel taking a bath. Look closely and you can see the immature Elegant Tern with the yellow bill. The Whimbrel in the background just seems to be watching them kinda like he’s too good to be part of their group!
I really did enjoy watching these birds taking their bath. It is the little things in life that can make it a good day, so make sure to always take the time to enjoy the little things!
