Saturday's Critters #123

Saturday's Critters #123

Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.

Happy Passover to all that celebrate!

I have some more backyard birds to share from the past couple of weeks. I hope you enjoy.



As usual all these photos are taken thru my windows, some windows may be clean and some have drops from the the rain or snow we had on that day. Above are the Red-bellied Woodpecker, Pine Warbler and a Carolina Wren.


This Hermit Thrush was seen out my treadmill window.


My yard is full of Chipping Sparrows lately, they are cute birds and sometimes really feisty.


One of my many Carolina Chickadees.


A male Downy Woodpecker..I hope you enjoyed my collection of backyard birds. As always thanks for the visits and the nice comments. I also thank everyone who is linking up and sharing their critters.. Happy Saturday, have a great weekend!

  4. Hello Eileen
    The birds you get in your garden are wonderful, especially the Chipping Sparrows. I bet they are quite common but I find them very pretty.
    Your pecker is cute we have one similar but it never came to my feeder.
    Warm hugs, enjoy your weekend :)

  20. Good morning Eileen! We have a gorgeous (noisy, busy) woody who has been pecking away on our metal ladder propped against our poll barn. Not sure what he wants from it (silly bird) but he's been busy all week with it! I can't really see what he/she thinks is so important but woody does! Enjoy your weekend, I'm off to work but off tomorrow! Yay!

  21. Hello Eileen. It's very striking how many different species you have on your feeders. I guess it's because you still have a little cold weater around? Those Chipping Sparrows are delightful birds with their red caps but the Red-bellied Woodpecker is my favourite today.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  36. Hi Y'all!

    What are you feeding your birds?

    I always use thistle and sunflower seed or suet. Seeds from fresh fruit are served in a dish along with oranges or apples when I have them.

  49. Hello Eileen, your gorgeous bird photos always bring a smile to my face. The Woodpeckers and Chickadees are very handsome and the Pine Warbler and Wren are so cute. The Hermit Thrush looks well fed. Our Sparrows here in the UK aren't particularly colourful but they are sweet, hopping around the garden always keeping busy :-)

  59. Thanks for the prompt! I did a participating post for NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month) and the April A to Z Blogging Challenge.

    You have to use your imagination on the animal part. Beasts are mentioned, but somewhat figuratively.

  60. We have some of our regular birds back: tree swallows and robins, but I am anxious for the barn swallows to return. Hope they build a nest at our cabin again this year. They are messy, but so much fun to watch. - Margy
