Saturday's Critters #33

Saturday's Critters #33


Happy weekend and welcome to Saturday's Critters!  I always look forward to seeing everyone's cute critters.. Ok, it's time to share your critters.



 Before we left for our weekend walk I took some shots of our yardbirds.  Above is one of many of the Carolina Chickadees I see in the yard.


 The Ruby-throated Hummingbird sits on guard watching over his feeders.


 Ebony Jewelwing, the male has a metallic blue-green body..it lives near wooded streams and rivers..


One of several Great Blue Herons we saw during our George's Creek walk. Every time we walked near this Heron, it would fly further up stream. Till finally, it landed in a tree and we kept on walking along the George's Creek Trail. 



I hope your enjoyed my birds and the pretty Ebony Jewelwing.. I did not keep a list of birds..... but we saw and heard a lot of birds along the George's Creek trail..Seeing two Belted Kingfishers together and a few Wood Ducks were a treat. Another great weekend walk..









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

Good Morning Eileen. I've enjoyed your weekend walk and looking at those beautiful photos. I especially like the Great Blue Heron, so statuesque on those bare branches.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for the party today.

That Ebony Jewelwing is striking. I saw Black-capped Chickadees in Seattle and thought they were lovely, but your Carolina one is appealing too.
