What bird nest mites look like

I found this picture at the Purple Martin website. This is what was crawling on me yesterday

Thanks..Now I have to go take another shower.

I can only imagine the torment a helpless baby in the nest must feel.

I know, they're gross. Like crawling pepper.

Poor little babies...but once they are fledged, they can bathe and preen and get them under control.
Of course, once they're gone, I will have the bluebirds to worry and fret about.
