Saturday's Critters #219

Link up your post and share your critters, join in with my critter party ! You can share any kind of critters the real ones, pretend ones, statues and paintings, a new or old post!

I am not sure if any of my followers participated with the Great Backyard Bird Count with Cornell Lab of Ornithology, here is the link GBBC  the count took place on Feb 16-19th. Here are some of the birds I saw during my backyard count. It is a fun online citizen-science project.

The Northern Cardinals, I counted 3 males and 2 females at one time.



The Eastern Bluebird does not stop by often but sometimes I catch them sitting in our back yard trees. On this day I saw a pair, maybe checking out my birdhouses.


The Blue Jays were my highest count species of bird. I saw 12  Blue Jays at one time.

On Feb 18th we had about 2inches of snow. The GBBC also asks us to record the weather along with the length of time we watched our backyard birds.  There are three White-throated Sparrows below can you find them?


3 Eastern Bluebirds showed up during my count and checked out the birdhouse.

I am going to be blogging and commenting less starting after this Critter post.  I  will be posting just once a week with my Saturday's Critter party.  I just feel the need to slow down and take a break, blogging, commenting and computer time. 



I have some of my yard birds to share, with the weather lately I have not been able to go far from home.






The female Junco looks a little more brownish than the darker male Junco.


The Blue Jays try stuffing in as much as they can into their beaks at one time.







We have had some little snow storms and some icy storms, the first week of February. Below are some Cardinals and White-Throated Sparrows and some Juncos sitting on the deck and plants. 













I appreciate and thank everyone who links up their post and for all the wonderful comments this past year !
