Around the Yard, Oct 4


Saturday, October 4, 2013

Linking up Camera Critters and I'd-Rather-b-birdin  
I hope you are joining in and posting your birds and critters.

These are some scenes from last weekend up thru today.  Mostly sharing shots of my yardbirds, I am never tired of watching my yardbirds. The migrating warblers have been a real treat to see stopping in my yard for some berries. I believe last Saturday was my last sighting of my Ruby-throated Hummingbirds.  I will leave the hummer feeders up in case there are any hummers traveling south and need to stop for a re-fill.


The shot above and the one below are the beautiful Cape May Warbler.




The Nashville Warbler...I was wondering who named the warblers. There are many that have the names of places..like Nashville and Cape May...Tennessee...Connecticut...Canada....Kentucky.



A pretty juvenile Nashville Warbler.


One of my regular year round birds...the Carolina Chickadee.


Possibly my last sighting of the Ruby-throated Humming bird..until next year...see you then.


 Goldie Girl goes for a walk to the lake.


Last but not least..a chipper to make you laugh!!! He/she has a peanut in each cheek and tried to take another. I hope you enjoyed this series of birds and critters.

Thanks for stopping by and  I wish everyone a happy weekend.
 To see more beautiful photos and cute critters

fabulous photos Eileen; I love the warbler and the chickadee (but the warbler is so colourful - love the yellows and rusts colours in birds). The chipmunk is comical.

Anni said...

OMGosh....this last image just made me spew my drink on the desk!! Eileen...that is such a FUN picture. And as always love your bird photos. Don't forget the place name of the Carolina Chickadee too.

Now you have me wondering just who DID come up with the names of the warblers.

Susan Cook said...

I like the chipmunk picture. We don't have any of those now. I swear they don't have them in VA like I used to when I lived in NH

I love your birds too. Happy Saturday :)

George said...

I'm very impressed with the portraits of birds you got for this post -- they are all marvelous. I also like your photo of the chipmunk.

Red Nomad OZ said...

It's always a pleasure to see your birds - but today it was even more of a pleasure to be cheered up by that chipmunk!! I've only ever read about them or seen them on cartoons - where I thought their cheeks were an exaggeration!! Now I see they're NOT!

Stephanie said...

Gorgeous shots. Love the one of the dog with the reflection.

I wish my yard was a stopover spot for warblers! I guess I'm not on their route. Oh, well, I can always check who's passing through yours. ;))
