there were lots of small birds taking an evening bath in a muddy puddle along the road. these photos show at least 2 individuals, but there were at least 20 birds in this mixed group. most of them moved away from the water into the grass after a hawk swooped over the puddle. the audio here is from the mixed group and so probably includes calls from another species.

Description

i heard lots of chatter coming from the tall grasses growing in the water. occasionally one or two birds would pop up from the grasses and fly over to another nearby clump. eventually, the chatter picked up, reflecting excitement perhaps, and they flew out of the grasses to the north, in several groups of 3 to 10 over the course of several minutes. in all, i would guess there were at least 25 birds there. later, i heard similar chatter from the fenced off grassy area to the north. i didn't get a good look to see if all the birds were the same kind, but they were all black birds. these photos show at least 3 different sets of birds.
