Friends, this common loon adult is taking time away from his chicks to take a Saturday night bath. The commotion is hard to miss as his splashing, diving and otherwise acting like a motorboat stirs up the water. Reminds me of the song lyrics “Splish Splash I was takin a bath long about a Saturday night
Splish splash, I was taking a bath Long about a Saturday night A rub dub, just relaxing in the tub Thinking everything was alright
Seems it was an old Bobby Darin song, that probably dates me some, til Tomorrow MJ

i have to admit it dates me too, i think we danced to that at boarding school! Great image MJ!
The robins do this dance in my pond!
i think all birds like a bath, just like us humans, thanks for your comment kate, MJ
I don’t know if I should bring this up. Buuuuut I think you may be dating yourself with that song!
no kidding, well it was a risk, but you remember too :), thanks MJ
Next time when cropping the image leave a little more room at the top. We loved the image.
thanks jack, i was concerned with the splash and the eye of the bird in the sweet spots, but you may be right, thanks MJ
