Example of and adult bird (unknown sex) taking an extensive mud bath almost resembling normal bathing behavior. Note the red plumage of the male on the right (appearing less red on the video than in reality). This 13-year-old male is among the lowest ranked adult males visiting the feeding station and has a breeding territory on Lanzarote (currently home to 6 breeding pairs).
