Parking at The Narrows I spotted a sleeping Cinnamon Teal. I love Cinnamon Teal, so I tried to get a photo... and noticed the Teal had company.

I drove on a bit farther and came upon a California Ground Squirrel having a dust bath in the middle of Coville Road. It looked to be having a wonderful, relaxing time.
This seemed to be the day for dust baths, as I came upon a Bewick's Wren having one on the loop trail up Baskett Butte. I took a few blurry photos,
then a couple videos...
and waited and waited for the wren to be done so I could continue on my way. Fifteen minutes of watching a wren squirm in the dirt, funny as it was, was enough. I was now late for picking up take-out Chinese food for Johnny's Father's Day eve supper, so I disturbed the happy wren and hurried by.
Although this is a Birds blog, I've already added a squirrel... why not a horse? The one with muscles painted on at the workshop at Old Mill Feed store is just too colorful to leave out of this day's photos. I'll bet this horse can't wait to roll in the dirt.
