Saturday’s Critters #4

I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas holiday. If you do not celebrate Christmas I hope you enjoy your holiday.. I thank all my blogging friends and visitors for their visits and comments over the past year.  I have to say I enjoy blogging and visiting everyone's blogs...I wish everyone all the best in 2014..Happy New Year..

These are some of my backyard birds and some critters seen in my sister's yard on Christmas Day..


There were about 5 deer seen in my sister yard.. she feeds them corn and has a salt lick.. Sorry the pole is in the way some...



I have been seeing a lot of the White-throated Sparrows in my yard.. they are one of my winter birds.


The Bluejay is a year round visitor and love the peanuts.

I hope to see everyone join in on the critter party,  link up your blog post sharing your cute critters. Any kind of critter will do. I am sure most everyone knows how to put a link on your post for Saturday's Critters. Also, I hope everyone will take some time and visit with some of the other bloggers linking up.......

I am so happy you joined in on  my Critter party....I hope to see you linking up again..

  4. nice to see the deers. Remined me that I have not seen them in the area so far this "winter". They probably stay in the woods as this winter is still warm.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY EILEEN.

  14. Hello Eileen,
    WOW, your sister is lucky to have deers in her backyard! A salt block is important to them for minerals and it always attracts them.
    I am delighted to discover the white-throated sparrow, what a gorgeous little bird!
    Happy New Year to you too, I wish you all the best and great observation opportunities!
    Keep well!

  29. So sweet to see the deer grazing near the feeders. I've only seen a white-throated sparrow a scant few times here and just love those bright yellow marks above their eyes.

  30. white throated sparrow is a very handsome bird

    ReplyDelete
  31. I enjoyed seeing the deer with the salt lick block. I've talked about using them in gardening lectures I give but have never seen one in action. The farm where I buy eggs sells the blocks and mounts to put them on a tree.
    The white throated sparrow is a common visitor here as well, cute little things.
    Thanks for hosting Eileen and have a very happy new year.

  38. Happy Holidays, there Eileen.

    Thanks for your visit. It is appreciated. Longwood Gardens is a very nice place to visit, but I have not been down there since the last time. The Christmas Display was on the schedule to go, but it snowed a bit heavy that day. Could not see driving a hour away in weather like that. It runs to Jan. 2nd. Maybe I'll get there, cause I'm told that it's so pretty to see. Have a great Holiday, Eileen.

  39. Once again, I enjoy all of your photos of your critters. I'm happy to say that your sister has more deer visiting her yard than we have visiting ours!
