Scientific justification of omens and superstitions

Ornithologists have long figured out the reason why sparrows often bathe in a puddle or sand. In this way they are trying to get rid of various feather lice. These ectoparasites cause a lot of trouble for both adult birds and chicks, and you can get rid of adults and their eggs with water, so sparrows bathe in puddles.

If the water has not yet warmed up, they try to get rid of feather lice using sand baths. In addition, fidgeting in the sand helps scratch the skin, which becomes itchy due to the movements of parasitic insects.

Ornithologists have another explanation for this bird behavior. Due to rising temperatures in summer, sparrows become hot. Therefore, they try to cool off in cool puddles. In addition, dust clogs the coccygeal and supratail sebaceous glands, which is why an insufficient amount of oily substance reaches the plumage. To cleanse the skin, birds take baths.

The found corpse of a sparrow is also a bad omen. If a dead bird was found near the threshold, the owner of the house will face financial problems. If a dead bird was in the garden, the signs state that the children in the house will get sick.
