Splash bath.

Heard a familiar call and took a look and there was a tufted titmouse having a splash bath.
We hadn't seen a tufted titmouse for months so it was a special treat.

Baeolophus bicolor

Tufted Titmice often line the inner cup of their nest with hair, sometimes plucked directly from living animals. The list of hair types identified from old nests includes raccoons, opossums, mice, woodchucks, squirrels, rabbits, livestock, pets, and even humans.
