The summer heat in HK sometimes is unbearable not only for humans, but also for the birds. While we humans often head off to the beach, the birds like to find a puddle to cool themselves down. The other day, I saw several Tree Sparrows having a good time by a river bank.
One of them jumped in first, while its friends were not so sure about the water.
So they decided to watch.
I guess their friend must have told them how enjoyable the bath was。
They decided to join in。
I could see that they were having a good time。
A Black-Faced Laughing Thrush couldn’t resist the fun either.
The Spotted Doves, on the other hand, seemed to be very cautious about the water.
