Be sure and wash behind your ears

The sparrows take dirt "baths" to clean their feathers. They burrow in and flap their wings. This was the first time I'd seen a baby sparrow bathe. It not only cleaned its wings,... it cleaned its whole head and didn't stop till an older sparrow chased it away. I do love baby sparrows. They're a wonderful combination of almost helpless and goofy-efficient.
