Saturday's Critters #14

Saturday's Critters #14

Hello blogging friends,  time for Saturday's Critter party.  Link up your post and have some fun seeing all the different critters..   It is fun to visit with some new bloggers and some old blogging friends.  Either way, I hope everyone has a great day and enjoys all the critters.


A cardinal couple hanging together, sharing their meal.

A pretty Redbellied Woodpecker and a Cardinal in the tree.


A snowstorm always attracts more birds to my yards. Above are the Cardinals, House Sparrow, Junco and a Goldfinch.



Above a couple of Blue jays, a Starling and a Redbellied Woodpecker. I think the Redbellied is upset with the Starling..





Thank you for linking up to the critter party. I appreciate the visits, comments and the support of my blogging friends..

To see more beautiful birds and cute critters

Also please visit:  I'd-Rather-B-Birdin. Thanks to the gracious host: Anni of I'd Rather-B-birdin. Also, sharing with Camera Critters. Thanks to Misty for hosting.

  1. Ah Eileen I always love seeing your Red-bellied and Cardinal Woodpecker. Your starling looks like the Common or European Starling we see in South Africa. I'll try to link my Saturday Critters with you now. Have a great day. Jo
