My neighbors

I am linking up with Camera Critters and I'd-Rather-B-Birdin.

Time sure does fly, it is the Saturday before Christmas and I want to wish everyone a a very Merry Christmas.

I thought for this week's critters post besides my usual backyard birds I would show some of the local critters from around the neighborhood.

 A Pine Siskin and a couple of my Goldfinches.


Some Longhorn cattle


A nearby buffalo farm


Some cute hogs.


A chubby Mourning Dove


A White-Breasted Nuthatch

 To see more beautiful photos and cute critters please visit:  Camera Critters and I'd-Rather-B-Birdin. Thanks to the host 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.

  40. I have been enjoying a couple things. When family is around and before everyone is up, I go to watch the feeders and take a walk around neighborhood parks....which turn up the most fascinating birds:) And I don't have to go far to find them. A good way to start the morning:)

  41. Those are cute hogs. Looks like they had fun rolling around on the ground.

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
Have a great day, Eileen
