The bird; a warm blooded species, that has feathers and lays eggs. Did you know that the modern bird has no teeth? While some birds are hunted, others are kept as pets, like the common parrot. We see birds everyday,in our backyard, when we are out for a walk, or when we are trying to eat a snack at a park, but we never stop and look at how beautiful these animals really are. Go bird watching one day, the beauty of the bird may just happen to suprise you.
Just because tigers, monkeys, and birds don’t roll out of bed, jump in the shower, and turn on the tap, doesn’t mean they don’t have serious and involved ways to get clean. Bathing has been a central ritual of human civilizations for nearly all of recorded history but many animals, too, need to bathe to maintain hygiene and body temperature. Several species of birds and mammals exhibit the behavior but—while functionally very similar—animal bathing often takes a radically different form. Perhaps the most commonly witnessed animal bathing are birds.
