Brewer’s Blackbird enjoys the rain, as photographed by Rob Diefenbach

Yes, rain is hitting the Mendonoma Coast, filling our seasonal creeks and adding precious water to our rivers and watersheds. A Brewer's Blackbird was seen taking a bath in a rain puddle and Rob Diefenbach caught the action with his camera. It seems to me the bird is glaring at Rob - this would be a great photo for a caption. Got one?

All creatures great and small appreciate the rain. Thanks to Rob for allowing me to share his photos with you here.
