The Wonders of Wild Life: Doves in the Rain

Have you ever seen doves in the rain?

They like to take a shower.
They sit there in the really, really, heavy rain. I mean, pouring down. They sit there and they turn towards the rain and slowly lift up a wing; hold it for awhile then lower the wing; swivel - and extend the other wing for a good old underarm dowse.

Seen wood pigeons do it too.

Every other bird takes shelter - doves and pigeons take a shower.
