Backyard birds & critters

I am linking up with Camera Critters


Ok guys, I am blocking the camera go and eat all the birdseed



Could you lower this feeder some, I have to stretch SO far to reach the food.



                       Are you looking at me?

                    A few sweet looking doves





                      The masked bandit...luckily my feeders were put away in the evening.

I like how the camera caught this coon walking along the deck railing.

  11. Eileen, Thanks for your nice comments on my past posts. So glad the wedding is over--fun but stressful! What a variety of "critters" you have around your house. Such fun to watch their antics--great captures. Have a lovely weekend. Mickie :)

  15. Its good to see the good ones and the "nearly" ones Eileen. If only those creatures realised they could be famous they might pose a bit better. The stretchy squirrel made me laugh, and the oblivious crow - if only they knew! Hope your spring arrives soon.

  24. Good morning Eileen..hope your enjoying your weekend! I missed you and just got a little run down recently..but hey, your header is just so inviting and these criters are hilarious!!
    I found these little sparrows eating my myna bird food! (though one is separated from the other cage its easy for them to get through one. Well, I'd been switching off with larger size pellets to save (not as nutritional) but now I can't get it anymore? So I have to provide for the sparrows who were already waiting for me this morning (lol) I can't imagine this crew here..they are delightful and you must just get a kick out of them- great share Eileen- Your sweet dog is precious!!

  29. What a pretty dog! I am laughing at your bird cam. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I really want to get my own....maybe this summer. I am fascinated by animal and bird behavior.....did you know that Ravens love to look at themselves when given a reflection? Pretty intelligent birds. Some even say smarter than a dog....but don't let your puppy hear that:) Enjoy you're weekend. Keep sharing those funny squirrel and racoon cam pics....I like these posts a lot.

  30. Hi Eileen, Betcha can't tell which picture I like - yep, that Downy Woodpecker is the one. Love that raccoon, too! Sauntering across the decking like it is right at home. Ha! Good thing the bird feeder is put away. Have a wonderful Sunday tomorrow! Like your dog, too by the way.

  40. More great shots. I hate the squirrels, but they can be funny.
    I wonder if there are woodpeckers here in Toronto... I loved my red-headed buddies back in Jackson.
