Hi there - birds in the bottom of reed beds are always a challenge!

No mammals from me this week - so I linked up my WBW post.

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

Excellent captures Eileen!!!
Hope your weekend will be super. And since I'm still getting acquainted with this new computer, I will add my thanks for linking up at The Bird D'Pot with your bird photo shares.

David Gascoigne said...

Is there anything more stunning than a male Wood Duck?

Frank said...

A lovely selection Eileen and you did well to capture the tiny Marsh Wren.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

I especially like that Wood Duck with its reflection. They (and Painted Buntings) have my vote for our most beautiful birds.

EG CameraGirl said...

Marsh wrens are very hard to photograph, at least for me.

Brian King said...

Wood Ducks are one of my favorites! They have such gorgeous colors - both sexes. The little Yellowthroat is beautiful!

Phil Slade said...

Good Morning Eileen. Thanks for hosting the party today and I'm so pleased to join in.

Shame the Robin has lost all the summer colour but the Wood Duck and the Yellowthroat sure make up for that.

Enjoy your weekend!

Sandra said...

The marsh wren is living up to its name!

Lynne said...

I thought I had a great picture of 6 male cardinals, some females and many others at the feeder one day this week! I was going to join you today with the picture but it was too far away. . . looks more like 6 red dots . . .
One day though, I will link up with you!

As you know, I always love your photos and
Saturday Critters is a treat!

Nice bird shots as always. The wood duck is gorgeous. I like your new header and that you added the poofy cardinal as one of the header pics.

Ni de Aqui, Ni de Alla said...

Wood duck are so pretty! Cute warbler, I just learned not long ago, that the birds in my garden were not goldfinches but warblers:)

Christa atCedarmereFarm said...

Good eye spotting the Marsh Wren. I always enjoy seeing your bird photos, Eileen. Have a nice weekend.

That Robin looks as though he's had a rough day. : )

Noushka said...

Lovely birds Eileen!
The robin is gorgeous!

Lovely shots of the avian kind! If I were a Wood Duck, I'd constantly stare at my own reflection! So beautiful!

Small City Scenes said...

Lovely birds. Beautiful Wood Duck. MB

Ida said...

I did enjoy your birds, so many varities. I love the Wood Duck, they are so colorful.

Black Jack's Carol said...

I did indeed enjoy your birds, Eileen. It's nice to see that we share Wood Ducks and robins, each in our parts of the world. We don't see yellow-throated warblers.. just the yellow-rumped ones here.. at least as far as I know (not expert). Love the marsh wren. You have such sharp eyes! Many thanks for hosting.

Bob Bushell said...

Oh yes, what a collection, cheers Eileen.

A Quiet Corner said...

It seems that the Wrens around here fuss a lot too...LOL! Could that Cardinal in your header get any fatter, Eileen? It looks like it will explode!!!...:)JP

Ela said...

Eileen, those are so wonderful birds ! I love to watch your photos !
Have a nice weekend :)

4ncü Ev said...

Beautiful birds and nice shots!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

The yellowthroat warbler is such a pretty bird, Eileen! You have really inspired me to pay attention to the birds and trying to learn their names. I have one I was thrilled to see in next week's post!

Marie said...

I really love that yellowthroat warbler! Great photos. Thanks for another week of Saturday's Critters!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

The wood duck is at the top of my wish list -- I've never seen one (I know there are some in Oregon as well as probably Florida and in between, but somehow, never where I am. Surprised that little robin is still up there!


Thanks so much for hosting.

Elaine said...

Lovely!

Betsy Adams said...

Love seeing all of the critters on Saturday... You have a great group!!!!

I wish I had/knew Warblers. I'm sure we have them in our area --but I just don't know much about them. Such beautiful little birds.

Hope you get your computer problems fixed soon.

Getting ready for another cold blast on Thursday!!!! Looks like winter is coming for sure... VERY busy in the yard!
Hugs,
Betsy

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Great Pond shots!!
I don't remember what that green miniature plant is called Eileen, that sits on top of the water?? We would scoop it out since it blocks the sun from the lower levels of the pond!! Love the Wood Duck!

Ailime said...

Olá Eileen, tão belas essas aves!
Fotos magnificas!
Abraços e feliz fim de semana.

Chris Rohrer said...
