Splish, Splash, I’m Taking A Bath

There was a splishin and splashin… come on sing along…

Rollin and a strollin
Movin and a grovin

Reeling with the feeling
Splishin ana a splashin
Rollin and a strollin
On a Saturday night… Sing along…

Shake, shake, shake….

Oh, shake, shake, shake; shake, shake, shake,
Shake your booty! Shake your booty.

Aah, You can, you can do it very well.
You’re the best in the world, I can tell.

I smell roses!

Whoops!! I think I am in trouble. I was told not to get the roses wet late in the day.

Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn’t mean my eyes will soon be turnin’ red
Crying’s not for me

Cause I’m never gonna stop the rain by complainin’
Because I’m free
Nothing’s worrying me.

I’m having a great time.

Rub dub
Just relaxin in the tub
Thinkin everything was allright

What the? Incoming…

Get that Jay out of here. Don’t come back until we are Jay free.

All gone dear, you are free to have the bath to yourself.

Want some company? No need to give me that look. Let’s sing…

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free

What the… I thought you said we were going to be alone. Incoming….

Now that is a pretty bird honey. Hey, where did you go?

Yipes, here comes another one. And they look mad.

Now no need to get testy. Let’s have a talk about this, fellas.

We are all reasonable birds here.

You had no right to kick my friend out of the bird bath. Now if you can please leave.

Well, how long do you think they will be gone? Certainly, not long enough. Can’t trust those Grackles.

Let this be a warning to all you Jays, Grackles are mean and nasty, downright evil doers. They do not share and they think all is theirs. We Jays have a reputation to uphold and no Grackle will get any respect of Blue Jays. And they were the ones to get the roses wet, and I am sticking to my story.

All together now…. Splish, splash, I’m was taking a bath, long about Saturday night.

No photo manipulation on any image, bird expressions just caught at the right time with fast shutter action. I was inside and shots were taken through the window, so a bit of window haze.

    Great captures, Donna! I’m singing along with you.

  2. GREAT photos! And I loved the lyrics. Especially ‘Blackbird’, which is one of my favorite Beatles songs (though I hate grackles just as much as the Blue Jays!)

  3. astridshome says:

    I was certainly singing along with the Jays – what a great old song! And the Beatles one too! What’s it say about my memory, though, when I can remember all the words to songs like these but can’t remember what I did yesterday??? Uh oh……..great photos, Donna, and fun post.

  4. Brian Comeau says:

    Very entertaining and creative! You captured some great images (…and personalities).

    ooh those bluejays, such bullies. Though the mockingbirds here win out, if push really comes to shove. Which it does.

  14. Barbie says:

    love the blue jays! You have captured that amazingly! πŸ™‚
    The black birds we call starlings – are real pesky pests! They overwhelm the bird feeders and baths too. Just roughnecks, if you ask me!

  15. Fabulous pics! Those grackles, I swear. They used to completely bamboozle the birds on our feeders at our last house. Such bullies! πŸ˜‰ I’m happy to say we’re grackle-free here!
