I was told and I believe that birds carry protozoans on their feet. So, when I saw a family of crows bathing in my friend's birdbath I thought I would find numbers of protozoans in the water when they left. Sampling the water, I did find bacterial growth but no protists. On the other hand, garden plants being rooted in a jar of water harbored masses of protists, amoebas and bacteria. An interesting comparison.

Don, have you checked your feet lately? You may be as bad as Mr. Crow!! and more like the rooting plants
You cleared the crow of any crime..." I did find bacterial growth but no protists."
As usual interesting video.
