Singing in the Rain

This male Townsend's Warbler thought taking a bath during a brief rain shower today was a great idea.  So pleased was he that many soft warbler chips were sung during his late morning rinse.  Townsend's Warbler’s breed in the moist forests of the Pacific Northwest and can be found wintering along Southern California’s coast to as far south as Nicaragua and Costa Rica.
