HOUSE SPARROW, EVANSTON, ILLINOIS, FEBRUARY 3, 2011

"Who's been swimming in my drinking water?" this sparrow seems to be saying. The photo is not terribly good so far as image quality is concerned -- it's heavily cropped, the lighting is poor, and the bird's head suffers from motion blur -- but the unexpected stream of water perhaps makes the picture worth posting.
