Corvid beauty tips

Sometimes when I am chatting with the corvids, I ask how they get their feathers so glossy and shiny. Surely they spend a fortune on product! They all look a little bit sorry for me as they explain that their beauty is natural. All they need is a bath.

I've never known birds that take as much pleasure in bathing as crows and ravens. The moment I've refilled the water bowls, they dive right in! After their bath, they spend hours preening and grooming their feathers until they gleam.

Here you seen Einstein the pied crow and Little Guy the white naped raven just after bathing:
