Welcome rain

White-crowned Sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophrys) bathing on 5 April 2018.  We often notice a lot of bird activity at the bird bath when it starts to rain.  I'm not exactly sure why?

Sounds like we're due for quite a bit of precipitation tomorrow.  We've received ~20 inches so far this winter, but the average annual rainfall total in this area is closer to ~31 inches, so a little more would be welcome!
