And you thought you were having a humid hair day.
This is a young Eastern Phoebe after taking a romp in the bird bath.

Sayornis phoebe 

The Eastern Phoebe is a loner, rarely coming in contact with other phoebes. Even members of a mated pair do not spend much time together. They may roost together early in pair formation, but even during egg laying the female frequently chases the male away from her.
