Saturday's Critters #61

♥♥  Happy Valentine's Day ♥♥

Happy weekend..I hope everyone is well.. It's time to share your critters.. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. 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 all my blogging friends stopping by just for a visit.


Suddenly my Pine Siskin numbers have increased from just one to three on Feb 9..I am hoping next time they bring their friend the Redpoll  with them to lunch at Eileen's..




Above are three Pine Siskins on the thistle sock..


Meet my new grandpuppy ..Nibbles is her name... Nibbles is a rescue, part German Shepherd.. I am happy I will be able to puppy sit sometimes.. YEA!!



Isn't she cute? My son surprised us with his new puppy last Sunday when we showed up at his place to go out to dinner.. A cute and wonderful surprise..

I hope you enjoyed my new Grandpuppy, my birds and post..Again I 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!

Nibbles is adorable! We had a dachshund and a German shepherdwhen I was little. I'd love to have a dog again, but hubby is afraid of them. Have a wonderful weekend, Eileen!

NatureFootstep said...

grandpuppy, what a great thing and so sweet. Steal every heart.

Liz Needle said...

Nibbles is a very cute pup. What breed is he? I like the 'thistle sock'. I haven't seen a feeder like that before. What type of thistle seeds do you use?

Uppal said...

All your pictures are bright and fabulous. Best wishes on Valentine day to you too. We in North India are having the best of weather. Bearable cool and tons of sunshine. of course I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Nibbles looks delightful! I miss seeing those winter finches but not the cold and snow. This morning we were a frosty 45 degrees F with a breeze that makes it feel like 41. Bundling up now to get out on the morning walk!

Revrunner said...

A member of my family likewise surprised me over the holidays with her new puppy, only he was already by then 60 lbs! 8-)

Hannah said...

The Pine Siskins and finches are so cute on the mesh bag, fun to watch. Nibbles is adorable, I only have grand kitties.

A Quiet Corner said...

Oh Eileen, Nibbles is just gorgeous and I know how much you will love babysitting!!! If he needs an "auntie" I am available. Eileen, how can I tell the difference between a Pine Siskins and a Goldfinch beginning to turn? I thought I was looking at finches, but in looking at your close-up, I wonder. What woould be the distinguishing factors?..:)JP

Karen S. said...

I just adore checking out these lovely critters, and seeing the posts that roll through my blog. I took some cute photos that once I check my camera, may post here tomorrow. I should join in too! It's so the rage you know.

Happy Puppy Day, Eileen!

Carola Bartz said...

Nibbles is super cute!
We have pine siskins here at the moment, and we have been warned that many of them actually develop some kind of salmonella that kill them as well as other birds that share the same feeders. It's sad... we will actually stop feeding for two weeks or so until the pine siskins have moved on (they don't stay here). So far there weren't any dead birds in my yard, but I'm not taking any chances.

Linda said...

What a cute puppy! Hope to see more of her.

Michelle said...

Nibbles is so cute!

Phyllis Oller said...

The puppy is being really good for being in the cart, he`s a cutie! I`m wondering if some of what I thought were finches on my thistle sock are really pine siskins too,thanks for hosting,have a great rest of the weekend,Phyllis

Chandra Eswaran said...

Congrats on the Grand Puppy, Eileen!
What a bundle of joy! Enjoy!!
Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)

Anni said...

I now have a new love interest. At first I thought you got yourself a new furry companion. But like any 'grand'...you can spoil 'em and send 'em home afterward. LOL Nibbles is precious.

Loved the Siskin...we don't have them here that I've ever seen.

Once again, thanks for taking time to add your link to share your birding post at I'd Rather B Birdin'!!!

Crafty Green Poet said...

Nibbles is adorable!

The pine siskins are beautiful. Great shots! And I LOVE your new grandpuppy. She is the cutest. Makes me want a puppy, too :D What a sweet surprise!

Noushka said...

Hello Eileen,
I bet you have melted at the sight of this puppy!
It is soooo cute :)
Very interesting to see your Siskins, they are quite similar to ours with few differences!
You have plenty, I had only one female at the feeder so far this winter.
Thanks for your kind and faithful visits, I have hardly time to blog... once again!!
Keep well, hugs from France :)

I keep checking my feeders for Pine Siskins, but nothing yet. Can you send a few my way?

Bethany Carson said...

Your new grand-puppy looks completely adorable! Our dog is part German Shepherd, and she is the best anyone could ask for.

Enjoyed the photos of the Pine Siskins.

Howdy, I believe your site could be having
internet browser compatibility issues. When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however,
if opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give
you a quick heads up! Aside from that, great site!
