This is a backyard American Robin bathing to music. The song is “Dare” by the Gorillaz.
We set up this heated bird bath in close proximity to a window where we could observe, photograph, and film birds and other wildlife.
American Robins are common in our area as they are in much of the United States. But their commonness makes them endearing birds to observe, often up close. Robins sing early in the morning, starting well before the sun begins to peak over the horizon. They also seem to have a fondness for extravagant bathing sessions, although not always with music.
