A Tufted Titmouse’s Hilarious Bath Time

Today’s photos are sure to bring a smile to your face! I spotted a Tufted Titmouse enjoying a refreshing dip in my birdbath, and of course, I had to grab my camera. What I captured next had me laughing as I snapped away.

Let me tell you, this little bird definitely took advantage of the water! The first photo shows it perched right in the birdbath, feathers slicked down and thoroughly soaked. It was clear it was having a grand time.

But the real comedy came after. The second photo is of the Tufted Titmouse perched on a nearby branch, and let’s just say it looked like it had gone through a windstorm…or maybe a spin cycle in a dryer! Its feathers were fluffed out in every direction, like a tiny, feathered dandelion. Even its distinctive head tuft was a hilarious mess!

It was such a comical sight – this tiny bird with feathers askew, looking utterly bewildered by its own puffiness. I imagine it was shaking itself vigorously, trying to get some semblance of order back to its plumage.

These photos are a perfect reminder of the joy birds find in simple things like a refreshing bath. And who can blame them? Even if the aftermath is a bit comical!

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did capturing them. They’re a testament to the entertainment these little feathered friends can provide, even during their most basic routines.

  1. They do enjoy the water, but sure it takes a while for feathers to dry and then prune them back into place. Of course they have to let the top knot air dry. Nice you could watch and get some photos. Thanks for posting.
