Around the yard

For my Green Day and  Camera Critters  and I'd-Rather-B-Birdin
I am taking a walk around my yard and sharing some  flowering plants and a few birds and critters.


A bluejay molting.


A cute chipmunk enjoying my birdseed.


One of my regular yardbirds is the White-Breasted Nuthatch.



The birds are not the only ones that like this feeder. My last post showed a Grosbeak inside feeder chowing down on the birdseed.

These impatiens have been blooming since last spring. They do look pretty next to our driveway.


To see more beautiful photos and cute critters please visit: Green Day  and Camera Critters and I'd-Rather-B-Birdin. Thanks to the gracious host Fiona of Green Day, Misty Dawn of Camera Critters and to Anni of I'd Rather-B-birdin.  Thanks for visiting my blog and post. I wish everyone a very safe and happy weekend.

Love the cute chipmunk and the lovely birds. Living in a busy and crowded city, these are rare sights for me.

Crafty Green Poet said...

lovely photos, what a cute chipmunk!

Timeless said...

Those Nuthatches are cute to watch. Over here they are called by the Swedish name - "Nötväcka" which is pronounced ( nert - vecka )

They almost defy gravity when you see them on trees and branches.

Hello Eileen, What a great photo of a chipmunk....do you know I have never seen one. Oh and I love the bluejay, bless him, he looks like he needs a good wash and brush-up. What is a Gosbeak? is it a form of squirrel. Don't worry, your photos are lovely. Best Wishes Daphne

All those happy critters could testify to what a delightful place you have, Eileen, as can we. I especially love that little chipmunk.

Wonderful pictures .... so pretty little animals.
Love greetings, Karin

Carol said...

Lots going on in your yard! The chipmunk is so cute. Pretty impatiens. Mine didn't do well after a great start. My gardener said there is something going on with impatiens here and he can't plant them next year, some kind of disease or something. I think the New Guinea impatiens are ok to plant though.

SizzleandZoom said...

Great photos. I like photos of nature-especially birds. So hard for me to catch.

Shey said...

Lovely views and bird shots. Esp love the squirrel in compromising position. Too funny. Thanks for sharing.

Tricia Hays said...

Those tree rats are hilarious, aren't they! Always getting into everything... =)

Gary said...

That feeder is really something!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

The squirrel could drop into the basket.

Wonderful photos. I have noticed the birds here are beginning their molting process too. They look a bit odd while going through that, but still beautiful.
I miss my chipmunks, the neighborhood stray cat nabbed both of them,
Happy Sunday!

eden said...

Beautiful photos, Eileen! I love your impatients. They grow so well.

mick said...

Beautiful birds and very cute "critters".

Nice wildlife in your yard! My, those Impatiens really stuck around! Here in south Florida we had an Iguana that loved to eat their blossoms.

Nefertiti said...

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Oh gosh, that squirrel just cracks me up!!! And the lovely deep rich color of the impatiens...beautiful!!! Yep, I noticed the other day that some of the cardinals here are molting too. And the white breasted Nuthatch....sweet!!! As is the chipmunk!! You have so much going for you in your own backyard!!!

Thanks for linking up at the Bird D'Pot this weekend, and also dropping by Hootin' Anni's!!!!

Fantastic scenes from your yard!

Gorgeous yard -- how come the jay molts this time of year? Seems like he'd need his feathers as it turns cold.
