Jackdaws sunbathing

Description:

The nice thing about this is that the pair both sunned at the same time - pair-bonding behaviour as well as being anti-parasitic (presumably?).
This year I have also seen Starlings, House Sparrows, Dunnocks and Blackbirds sunning - but do many other species?

Nice photograph

I haven't seen jackdaws doing this, but I've seen other birds. And I'm told chickens do it, too.
