Bath Anyone?

A Robin observes with caution while a  Starling engages in a robust bath this afternoon.  My first thought was that the Starling was rather stupid or at least fool hearted, but then I reflected that the water was probably warmer than the air.  The air temp was 27, and the water had to be above freezing and possibly twenty degrees warmer than the air as Jeanette adds hot water several times a day to the birdbath.  So, maybe the Starling wasn’t as dumb as I thought.
