Saturday's Critters #50

Saturday's Critters #50


Happy weekend everyone! I am so sorry it has been three weeks since the last Saturday's Critter post. So much was going on with my computer, I could not visit everyone. And I missed visiting and commenting. But, for now I am glad to be back..


The Carolina Chickadee is a common bird in my backyard.. They come and go quickly to my bird feeders.


The Blue Jay is feasting on the peanut suet nuggets..


A Tufted Titmouse waiting for the feeder..


This little devil is a piggie and likes to sit in the feeder. As always I hope you enjoyed my post and critter photos..



And here is my great-nephew Neill and his dog Ajax.. a 150lb mastiff.

Ok, it's time to share your critters.. Any kind of critter will do.. I appreciate everyone who has linked up in the past and for those who are linking in on this week's critter party. And of course I always appreciate my blogging friends stopping by just for a visit..Also, I hope you can check out the post at Annis's I'd-Rather-B-BirdinYou should also check out Misty Dawn's Camera Critters.






Special thanks to Tex Theresa aka Tex, I was able to add this link up button and  to  Jennifer for creating my photo badge.








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

  6. Your birds look great, I also get Chickadees and Jays, but I don't think I've ever seen a Titmouse. It is a cute little bird. I partly solved my squirrel problems by putting some seed down on the deck as well as up on the railing, then the squirrels tend to go for the seeds on the deck and leave the birds alone more. That's a big dog for such a little boy, he could be a dog sofa!

  7. HI Eileen Lovely post. That Mastiff surely makes a great cushion for Neill.
    Have a lovely weekend.

  9. Welcome back after your misfortune with technology Eileen. I hope everything is OK now.

    Young Neill has a big buddy to look after him there.

  10. A great start to the winter season to see your garden birds pop up again at the feeders! Many must remember them from one year to the next!!
    I wish I could have squirrels visiting but no such luck!
    Keep well Eileen, glad you've got your PC working again!

  11. Hi Eileen, I'm so thrilled to link to you via Phil's post today! I thought you didn't have this meme anymore. I'll try and put up my first critters (since returning to EA this week) and link to you. I love your Great-nephew. I always love to see children who are comfortable with animals! Greetings. Jo

  17. Hi Eileen, lovely to see your birds again! The blue jay is beautiful.
    I know squirrels can be a pest but I love their agility and cleverness and the dexterity with which they use their nimble toes.
    Neill is really cute!

    Happy weekend!

  19. I like very much seeing the critters that spend time at your feeders. The titmouse and the Carolina chickadee I never see here but we do have black-capped chickadees that fly in quickly like your chickadee does. And we also have blue jays. OH, and we also have piggy squirrels!

  21. Welcome back! How I miss having a backyard feeder. I could get fined by the Homeowners Association and also violate local laws if I feed the Muscovy Ducks that mob to any food source and made quick work of the feeders that I set up when first moving to Florida.

    Good to have you back!

  55. Hello Eileen, I love watching the birds crowding around my birdfeeder too. I have about 4 squirrels who visit regularly too. Thankfully only one of the squirrels jumps right onto the feeder and stuffs himself ... he's getting quite plump I noticed! Now when I see him I send the dog out to chase him off. The birds all rise up to the trees, and then settle back again when the dog trots to the back door. Love your little titmouse, I wish we had those here! Wendy x

  56. Love the bird shots. What a great close up of the squirrel.

  61. Hi, again Dearest Eileen; It is evening time here. Naughty me wrote a blog today with out visiting friends, whew...

    ReplyDelete
  62. Good to have you back. I should have linked up my post. I'll try to remember this week.
    Loved the birds but the squirrel and that huge dog and cute little boy stole the show for me.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Ajax and Neill are such a beautiful sight together! Love all your little and bigger birds though you'd think they would gang up and tell Mr/Ms "Piggy" squirrel to show some manners :) Welcome back, Eileen. You were missed. Many thanks for hosting!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I love the Chickadee photos. I see them often, but still have no photos.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I'm catching up!!! what a huge dog with your nephew Neill!! Ajax doesn't look very old either!!

    ReplyDelete
  66. So glad you got your 'puter problems fixed. It's been our bi-annual seasonal move time lately, 'so I didn't have too much time to miss you ;>)~ Back soon to blogland -- today I'm just catching up with my favorite people and getting inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  67. haha love how your great-nephew and HUGE dog get counted as critters. I think Neill fits in the category of "critter" more than the dog, at least :D Great shot of the blue jay. I'm a sucker for squirrel pictures though, as well :)
