Saturday's Critters #16

Saturday's Critters #15


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.



These photos are from Monday March 17, St. Patricks Day.. I was home from work because of another snowstorm..


The snow brings many birds to my yard and feeders.. On this day, I saw a lot of Cardinals, WT Sparrow, Juncos, House Finches, my pretty Pine Warbler and a FOY Fox Sparrow seen in the first shot.


On the feeder are two female House finches and one pretty male House Finch.. The male Cardinal is eating off of the deck railing.


The red Cardinals really stand out in the white snow..I hope you enjoy my Cardinals...




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.

 Thanks for stopping by and  I wish everyone a happy weekend.
