Bald Eagle Taking a bath

This is Petra. She's one of our bald eagles in our Education Program. She's housed at the Bird TLC clinic in a very large mew. She's only a couple feet away from a kiddie wading pool, but she's decided she would rather scrunch into her water dish to bath and cool off.

It did get up to almost 60° by noon today, before it cooled off and started raining later on. I guess a good dip felt good.

I guess a clean eagle is a happy eagle.
An eagle in every pot?
